This paper describes a new approach for Intuitionistic fuzzy neural networks with interval valued intuitionistic fuzzy conditions. The theoretical basis for the new approach is presented, and well as examples to illustrate the proposed concepts and ideas. This paper can be viewed as the initial foundation of the area of intuitionistic fuzzy neural networks, and in future papers more results will be presented.
