Flexible querying using fuzzy logic: An implementation for microsoft access. (English) Zbl 0886.68061

Andreasen, Troels (ed.) et al., Flexible query answering systems. Dordrecht: Kluwer Academic Publishers. 247-275 (1997).
Summary: We present an implementation of fuzzy querying via a user-friendly interface to Microsoft Access 7. The system accommodates fuzzy (imprecise) terms and linguistic quantifiers allowing for queries exemplified by “find (all) record such that most of the (important) clauses are satisfied (to a degree from \([0,1]\))”. Zadeh’s fuzzy logic based calculus of linguistically quantified propositions, and Yager’ ordered weighted averaging (OWA) operators are employed.
