1999-2001: Fuzzy Object-Oriented Logic Programming.
Developed a theoretical framework for uncertain and fuzzy object-oriented models.
On this formal basis FRIL++ was implemented as an uncertain and fuzzy object-oriented
logic programming language to be used for constructing intelligent systems. In particular,
it was used to develop a fuzzy object-oriented data browser software module.
The project was funded by EPSRC and carried out with Bristol AI Group.
