Bases de datos y representación del conocimiento

The computer has three fundamental analogies with the human being (senses, memory and intelligence), but the coming out of the data bases announced a new form of language: the computer language. The data bases not only set several new technical and social problems, but moreover are modifying the traditional form of social memory, supported by paper, by changing it in a memory based on electronic means. This situation creates new forms of representation of knowledge to which the author gave attention in previous contributions with his SENECA project, in which computer language tries to give a synthesis of oral and written languages, with their respective advantages.
