Abstract An important task of learning is to establish relations among granules such as classes, clusters, sets, groups, etc. The relations can be represented by granular If-Then rules. How to quickly discover the granular If-Then rules becomes a major long-term problem. Conventional training-based approaches such as neural networks and neuro-fuzzy systems have the learning speed bottleneck problem. The new constructive 2-variable granular system was proposed based on soft computing and granular computing to highly speed up granular knowledge discovery. Now the important question is "is the constructive 2-variable granular system a universal approximator?" The constructive 2-variable granular system is proved to be a universal approximator. According to the proof, we can construct a granular constructive a-variable granular system with any required accuracy and a near optimal number of granular rules. In the future, the granular constructive n-variable fuzzy system will be investigated in general.
