In this paper, an evolving learning mechanism is proposed for general computing network model to make decisions in intelligent systems. The novel mechanism is performed by means of a set of computing cell operations such as self-generation, growth, self-division, and death. Under the mechanism, a computing network grows up to a mature network. A hidden cell in the network is defined as a condition matching-unit in response to a fuzzy sub-superspace in multiple-dimension input superspace. A sense-function is defined to represent connections from a hidden cell to input cells. The range and edge vagueness of the sense-function are determined by evolving learning mechanism when sample instances are presented to the network. This network is able to learn from a very few training instances to make decisions for unseen instances. The benchmark data sets from the UCI machine learning repository are applied to test the network and comparable results are obtained.
