Abstract : Narrative data processing and database updating are examined from the viewpoint of interaction with other processes in an automated data fusion system. Methods are outlined for using production rules (if-then rules) in the processing of the narrative data and for integrating such a process with other rule-based data-fusion processes. Database updating methods which employ a 'history file' are processed. An experimental rule-based program compares event reports for redundancies, combines reports of the same event and retires old data into a history file in a form useful for event reconstruction and evaluation. A number of related areas of investigation are suggested for future research. (Author)
