AbstractThis paper presents a framework for processing heterogeneous information based on the construction of general observational domains, and similarity-based function calculi suitable for data mining in domains which can be described by the corresponding observational models. These calculi are intuitive, simple, and sufficiently general for classification and pattern recognition tasks. Functions in these calculi are represented by a particular kind of neuron models and their behavior is illustrated with examples from real-world domains showing their capabilities in processing heterogeneous, incomplete and fuzzy information.
