A Fuzzy Approach to Predicting Chemical Data from Incomplete, Uncertain and Verbal Compound Features

Conference paper


Estimation of missing data in an incomplete data base is possible by means of physico-chemical (deterministic) models or by using inherent information in the data base under study. The use of deterministic modelling techniques is limited to those objects (compounds) that fit within all the necessary assumptions and therefore this method will be applicable to a subset of compounds only or several models have to be created in combination with the data base.
