Inferring a probability of a first inference absent from a database at which a query regarding the inference is received. The query is used as a frame of reference for the search. The database returns a probability of the correctness of the first inference based on the query and on the data. An action trigger is executed responsive to at least one of a) the probability of the first inference exceeding a first pre-selected value, b) a significance of the inference exceeding a second pre-selected value, c) a rate of change in the probability of the first inference exceeding a third pre-selected value, d) an amount of change in the probability of the first inference exceeding a fourth pre-selected value, and e) combinations thereof. At least one of the probability of the first inference and the action trigger is stored in the database.
