It deals with: 1. Knowledge/databases as a distinct region of computer space. 2. Store interface levels and persistent store. 3 Characteristic algorithms used in the area, their complexity and opportunities for parallelism. 4. What kind of general purpose KBMS can we make with currently available technology. </ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
