In the paper there are presented possibilities of use of artificial intelligence to build predictive models based on the measurement data. Fundamental problems concerning fuzzy logic, neural network and ANFIS system were discussed. This system connects capability of representation and processing of fuzzy logic and capability of learning of neutral networks. The ANFIS interface has been characterized relating to training a fuzzy model of Sugeno type. An example of using its interface to predicting of methane hazard in the region of mined longwall was presented. Predictive model based on the real methane measurement data from this longwall was developed.
