From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  intelligent database
  
      A database management system which performs data
     validation and processing traditionally done by application
     programs.  Most DBMSs provide some data validation,
     e.g. rejecting invalid dates or alphabetic data entered into
     money fields, but often most processing is done by application
     programs.  There is however no limit to the amount of
     processing that can be done by an intelligent database as long
     as the process is a standard function for that data.
  
     Examples of techniques used to implement intelligent databases
     are constraints, triggers and stored procedures.
  
     Moving processing to the database aids data integrity
     because it is guaranteed to be consistent across all uses of
     the data.  Mainframe databases have increasingly become more
     intelligent and personal computer database systems are rapidly
     following.
