Abstract:

The Persistent DataKnowledge Base PDKB project is a research effort funded by Rome Laboratory and conducted at the Computer Science Laboratory of SRI International. The main goal of this effort was to design develop persistent object storage techniques capable of handling multiple data objects in a distributed information processing environment. The objective of this effort was to perform an investigation and evaluation and to develop and verify a top level systemsegment design specification for a persistent object- oriented dataknowledge base system using techniques for 1 reliable and efficient access to dataKnowledge bases, 2 increased programmeruser productivity, and 3 integrated hyper-media data types. Techniques that were investigated include AIDB workstations, object representation including multimedia databases, temporal change management, persistent object storage media, spatial databases, and massive memory dataknowledge systems. The contribution is a highly intelligent technique for managing very large main memory or traditional secondary storage domains in a multimedia information system environment.
