Fuzzy queries processing by means of meta-natural language using fuzzy algorithms

Anna Kowalczyk-Niewiadomy, Adam Pelikant


This paper presents a novel idea of gaining imprecise information from relational database systems. Concernment of investigation rise fact that such kind of processing is not supported by any commercial database system. These researches illustrate a combination of database technology and fuzzy logic. The final aim is to develop a fuzzy querying system based on meta-natural language.
