The incorporation of interactive interfaces with databases to simulate those found in expert systems and the induction of rules from data are promising approaches toward facilitating the retrieval and interpretation of materials property data, thus combining the benefits of expert system and traditional database technologies. The hybrid system concept of utilizing data as facts and knowledge as rules is described in the context of addressing the need for expanding database utility to meet a broader range of user requirements.
