Zarri, Gian Piero (1988): Conceptual Representation for Knowledge Bases and "Intelligent" Information Retrieval Systems. In: Proceedings of the Eleventh Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval 1988. pp. 551-565.

This paper describes the "conceptual" Knowledge Representation Language (KRL) proper to an environment for the construction and use of large Knowledge Bases and/or "Intelligent" Information Retrieval Systems. In the KRL, we separate the treatment of the episodic memory (extensional, assertional data = "Snoopy is Charlie Brown's beagle") from the treatment of the semantic: memory (intensional, terminological data = "A beagle is a sort of hound / a hound is a dog ...). A compromise between an "object-oriented approach" and a "logic-oriented approach" is proposed for implementation purposes.

Zarri, Gian Piero (1986): The Use of Inference Mechanisms to Improve the Retrieval Facilities from Large Relational Databases. In: Proceedings of the Ninth Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval 1986. pp. 221-227.

This paper describes the development of "intelligent" tools aimed at improving the retrieval facilities from large relational databases. When a natural language query does not correspond directly to the data contained in the base, a class of inferential processes called "transformations" is applied. The original query is thus automatically converted into one or more "semantically close" ones. "Semantically close" means that the data possibly obtained with the new query will give useful information about the data originally searched for.

Zarri, Gian Piero (1984): Expert Systems and Information Retrieval: An Experiment in the Domain of Biographical Data Management. In International Journal of Man-Machine Studies, 20 (1) pp. 87-106.

The RESEDA project is concerned with the construction of Artificial Intelligence (AI) management systems working on factual databases consisting of biographical data; this data is described using a particular Knowledge Representation language ("meta-language") based on the Artificial Intelligence understanding of a "Case Grammar" approach. The "computing kernel" of the system consists of an inference interpreter. Where it is not possible to find a direct response to the (formal) question posed, RESEDA tries to answer indirectly by using a first stage of inference procedures ("transformations"). Moreover, the system is able to establish automatically new causal links between the statements represented in the base, on the ground of "hypotheses", of a somewhat general nature, about the class of possible relationships. In this case, the result of the inference operations can thus modify, at least in principle, the original content of the database.
