Project: Fuzzy temporal databases, approached interdisciplinarily from linguistics and from computer science.

abstract
The aim of the proposed project is to supportive for the realisation of databases which are semantically richer and more user-friendly than traditional (relational) databases. The project will focus on the integration of the notion 'fuzzy time'on at least the same levels as can be found in classical temporal databases. Temporal information is indeed of the utmost importance in databases, both as for valid time and transaction time. The project will benefit from the interdisciplinary research on the modelling of semantic vagueness carried out in the past by computer scientists and linguists at the University of Ghent.
