Natural Language Interface to Database Using Modified Co-occurrence Matrix Technique

Authors(1) :-V. Thulasinath

Today, database is considered as one of the major source of information. Data stored in database can be accessed by using SQL queries, Those who are expert in SQL language can access information from database but non-technical user cannot retrieve data from database such as MySQL and oracle, Everyone is not able to write SQL queries as they may not be aware of the structure of the database, So this has led to the improvement of interface s to Database System. This is useful for non-expert users to query relational databases in their natural language. However, this project accepts a query entered in natural language (i.e., English) for accessing/retrieving database. This statement will be verified syntactically and then produces equivalent statement in Structured Query Language (SQL). Finally SQL statement will be executed by query executor to produce desired information from database. In proposed system we focused on design and implementation of a system using modified word co-occurrence matrix method which will provide access to database using queries in English language. As a result intelligent natural language interfaces to databases to be developed.
