dc.description.abstractWhen defining a context of sustainability, capturing the complexity of data and extracting as much information as possible are fundamental challenges. Normally, quantitative and qualitative indicators are defined. While the definition and calculation of the former is direct, the latter are difficult to manage. This document provides tools based on connectionist techniques for managing complex information combining the use of imprecise and qualitative variables. The application of these tools to evaluate non-numerical sustainability indicators is presented. The results obtained in some first approaches are briefly presented to illustrate the connectionist paradigm.
