—While various articles about fuzzy entity relationship (ER) and enhanced entity relationship (EER) models have recently been published, not all examine how the constraints expressed in the model may be relaxed. In this paper, our aim is to relax the constraints which can be expressed in a conceptual model using the modeling tool, so that these constraints(More)
This paper proposes a Genetic Algorithm for jointly performing a feature selection and granularity learning for Fuzzy Rule-Based Classification Systems in the scenario of highly imbalanced data-sets. We refer to imbalanced data-sets when the class distribution is not uniform, a situation that it is present in many real application areas. The aim of this(More)
Although it is habitual to measure human perceptions with quite accurate instruments, perceptions are characterized by uncertainty and fuzziness. Furthermore, variations in individual perceptions and personality mean that the same words can indicate very different perceptions. In this context, the fuzzy linguistic approach seems to be an appropriate(More)
At present, we have a FSQL server available for Oraclecopy databases which allow us to query a fuzzy or classical database with the FSQL (fuzzy SQL) language for any data type. The FSQL language is an extension of the SQL language, which permits us to write flexible conditions in our queries to a fuzzy or traditional database. In this paper, we proceed to(More)
This paper studies how fuzzy quantifiers may be defined and implemented in a fuzzy database context. Fuzzy quantifiers are very useful for fuzzy queries, fuzzy constraints and fuzzy data mining applications. Besides, this paper shows different kind of fuzzy quantifiers with and without arguments. Finally, we show how fuzzy dependencies may use these fuzzy(More)
In this paper we present the problem of aggregating heterogeneous data from various websites with opinions about high end hotels into a database. We present the fuzzy model based on the semantic translation as a tool to obtain a linguistic summarization. The characteristics of this model (necessary to solve the problem) are not together on any of the(More)
We present a model made up of linguistic multi-criteria decision making processes to integrate the answers to heterogeneous questionnaires, based on a five-point Likert scale, into a unique form rooted in the widespread course experience questionnaire. The main advantage of having the resulting integrated questionnaire is that it can be incorporated into(More)
