Managing fuzziness on conventional object-oriented platforms

F. Berzal, N. Marín, O. Pons, M.A. Vila
2007 International Journal of Intelligent Systems  
Some of these scholars have used the Fuzzy Set Theory to deal with imperfection because it has proved to be useful in problems where imprecision and uncertainty play important roles.  ...  Fuzzy Set Theory has been used in the context of object-oriented databases in order to improve their modeling capabilities, so that different kinds of data imperfections can be represented.  ...  Acknowledgment This article has been supported in part by the Spanish "Comisión Interministerial de Ciencia y Tecnología" under grants TIC2003-08687-C02-02, TIC2002-00480, and TIC2002-04021-C02-02.  ...

Implementing Imperfect Information in Fuzzy Databases

Afef Bahri, Salem Chakhar, Yosr Na¨ıja, Rafik Bouaziz
Information in real-world applications is often vague, imprecise and uncertain.  ...  In database context, several fuzzy database models have been proposed. In these works, fuzziness is introduced at different levels.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors would like to thank Mr. Abdelkader Telmoudi for his valuable comments on an earlier version of this paper.  ... 

A Literature Overview of Fuzzy Database Modeling [chapter]

Z. M. Ma
Intelligent Databases  
To satisfy the need of modeling complex objects with imprecision and uncertainty, recently many researches have been concentrated on fuzzy object-oriented database models.  ...  This paper reviews fuzzy database models, in which fuzzy relational and object-oriented databases are discussed.  ...  An UFO (uncertainty and fuzziness in an object-oriented) databases model is proposed in [66] to model fuzziness and uncertainty by means of conjunctive fuzzy sets and generalized fuzzy sets, respectively  ...
