Handling complex and uncertain information in the ExIFO and NF2 data models

Trends in databases leading to complex objects present opportunities for representing imprecision and uncertainty that were difficult to integrate cohesively in simpler database models. In fact, one can begin at the conceptual level with a model that allows uncertainty assumptions and then transform those assumptions into a logical model having the necessary semantic foundations upon which to base a meaningful query language. Here we provide such a constructive approach beginning with the ExIFO model for expression of the conceptual design then show how the conceptual design is transformed into the logical design (which we utilize the extended NF2 logical database model). The steps are straightforward, unambiguous, and preserve the relevant information, including information concerning uncertainty.

Flexible querying in an intelligent object-oriented database environment
Koyuncu, M; Yazıcı, Adnan; George, R (2000-10-28)
Many new-generation database applications demand intelligent information management necessitating efficient interactions between database gr. knowledge bases and the users. In this study we discuss evaluation of imprecise queries in an intelligent object-oriented database environment, IFOOD. A flexible query evaluation mechanism, capable of handling different data types including complex and imprecise data and knowledge is presented and key language issues are addressed.
Improving the scalability of ILP-based multi-relational concept discovery system through parallelization
Mutlu, Ayşe Ceyda; Karagöz, Pınar; Kavurucu, Yusuf (2012-03-01)
Due to the increase in the amount of relational data that is being collected and the limitations of propositional problem definition in relational domains, multi-relational data mining has arisen to be able to extract patterns from relational data. In order to cope with intractably large search space and still to be able to generate high-quality patterns. ILP-based multi-relational data mining and concept discovery systems employ several search strategies and pattern limitations. Another direction to cope w...
Multiobjective relational data warehouse design for the cloud
Dökeroğlu, Tansel; Coşar, Ahmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
Conventional distributed DataWarehouse (DW) design techniques seek to assign data tables/fragments to a given static database hardware setting optimally. However; it is now possible to use elastic virtual resources provided by the Cloud environment, thus achieve reductions in both the execution time and the monetary cost of a DW system within predefined budget and response time constraints. Finding an optimal assignment plan for database tables to machines for this design problem is NP-Hard. Therefore, robu...
Conceptual design of fuzzy object-oriented databases
Yazıcı, Adnan (1998-04-23)
An important research trend in databases is to handle different types of uncertainty at conceptual level. The trend of incorporating complex objects in databases presents opportunities for representing imprecision and uncertainty that were difficult to integrate cohesively in simple database models. In this study we introduce a conceptual data model by extending ExIFO to handle both complex and uncertain, mainly fuzzy, objects and classes.
Reducing inconsistencies in intuitionistic 2-way adaptive fuzzy control systems
Gurkan, E; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Erkmen, İsmet (2000-08-30)
Our objective in this paper is to model and reduce inconsistency in expert knowledge for our proposed 2-way adaptive fuzzy system that makes use of intuitionistic fuzzy sets. Intuitionistic fuzzy sets model an interval valued distribution of information in the adaptive control architecture with the necessity at the lower bound as the degree of membership functions and the possibility at the upper bound as the complement of the degree of nonmembership functions. Uncertainty is modelled as the width of this i...
