Towards Intensional Answers to OLAP Queries for Analytical Sessions
One of the problems in analyzing large multidimensional databases through OLAP sessions is that decision makers can be overwhelmed by the size of query answers, while they need a concise summary of data. Intensional query answering can help by providing a concise description of ex-tensional answers (i.e., the sets of retrieved facts), generally relying on knowledge like integrity constraints, taxonomies, or patterns discovered from data. This paper proposes a framework for computing an intensional answer to an OLAP query by leveraging on the previous queries in the current session.
