A comparison technique for Ill-known time intervals

Currently, many existing information systems contain large amounts of data. Prior research shows that many of these data represent time (domain) intervals and many of those may be subject to uncertainty. Moreover, great attention has been attracted …

Fusion of preferences from different perspectives in a decision-making context

The role of computational intelligence in temporal information retrieval: a survey of imperfect time in information systems

In existing literature, many proposals have concerned the modeling or handling of imperfection in time in information systems. However, although reviews, surveys and overviews about either imperfection or time in information systems exist, no …

Combining quantifications for flexible query result ranking

Databases contain data and database systems governing such databases are often intended to allow a user to query these data. On one hand, these data may be subject to imperfections, on the other hand, users may employ imperfect query preference …

Fuzziness in database management systems: half a century of developments and future prospects

Combining uncertainty and vagueness in time intervals

Database systems contain data representing properties of real-life objects or concepts. Many of these data represent time indications and such time indications are often subject to imperfections. Although several existing proposals deal with the …
