Project: An inquiry into the incorporation of vague concepts and vague predicates into object-oriented databases an integrated approach from linguistics and informatics, oriented towards efficiency.

project duration
01-JAN-94 – 31-DEC-99
The investigation aims at 1) a realistic modelling of knowledge (description of concepts and predicates) to facilitate the manipulation of knowledge by the computer in the context of database systems. Vague modelling, as it emerges from investigations in cognitive linguistics, will be the central notion 2) the construction of a user-friendly, interactive vague database software in anticipation of the development of object-oriented database systems.
