Databases and Information Retrieval
Towards an intelligent database system founded on
the SP theory of computing and cognition
Argues that the SP system may serve as an intelligent database that can
integrate diverse kinds of knowledge. At the same time, it can emulate existing
models such as relational databases, network and hierarchical databases. The
paper also discusses how existing prototypes can be translated into an
'industrial strength' working system.
