<p><b>Abstract</b>—Next generation information system applications require powerful and intelligent information management that necessitates an efficient interaction between database and knowledge base technologies. It is also important for these applications to incorporate uncertainty in data objects, in integrity constraints, and/or in application. In this study, we propose an intelligent object-oriented database architecture, IFOOD, which permits the flexible modeling and querying of complex data and knowledge including uncertainty with powerful retrieval capability.</p>
Object-oriented databases, knowledge-base systems, uncertainty, fuzzy set theory, flexible querying.
