Functional Database Languaguages

Three functional database languages were developed at Birkbeck during the 1980s - 2000s: FDL, PFL, and IQL, the query language used in the AutoMed heterogeneous data integration toolkit.

These systems were used by a range of research collaborators from academia and industry, in areas such as life sciences data management and integration, road traffic data analysis, data exchange between autonomous vehicles, and crime investigation.
