Data Mining via Fuzzy Querying over the Internet

  • Janusz Kacprzyk
  • Sławomir Zadrożny

Abstract

We present an approach to data mining in databases by using fuzzy querying, implemented as our FQUERY for Access system, and then extended to make fuzzy querying possible via a WWW browser. This makes it possible to browse through enormous, and growing, information resources that can be found via the Internet.
