Abstract:


We describe a prototype for an information system that integrates text and fact retrieval. A query is a set of conditions which relate either to the text or the attribute values of a database object. Conditions may be assigned weights w.r.t. the query as well as to an object. These weights form the basis for a ranking of the database objects w.r.t. the query. As user interface, the system provides a menu-oriented browser.
