Facilitating virtual representation of CAD data through a learning based approach to conceptual database evolution employing direct instance sharing [chapter]

Awais Rashid, Peter Sawyer
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents a framework for a learning based approach to dynamically evolve the conceptual structure of a database in order to facilitate virtual representation of data in a CAD environment.  ...  The object model and the schema model are justified through several sample cases depicting the mapping from the object model to the schema model.  ...  We, however, scope our approach to make use of the knowledge inherent in engineering design data and use this knowledge for database evolution through semi-autonomous learning in a manner that will facilitate  ...
