Neural Networks and Database Systems

Object-oriented database systems have proven very valuable at handling and administrating complex objects. In the following guidelines for embedding neural networks into such systems are presented. It is the authors goal to treat networks as normal data in the database system. From the logical point of view, a neural network is a complex data value and can be stored as a normal data object. It is generally accepted that rule-based reasoning will play an important role in future database applications. The knowledge base consists of facts and rules, which are both stored and handled by the underlying database system.
