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

      The Aditi Deductive Database System.  A
     multi-user deductive database system from the Machine
     Intelligence Project at the University of Melbourne.  It
     supports base relations defined by facts (relations in the
     sense of relational databases) and derived relations
     defined by rules that specify how to compute new information
     from old information.
     Both base relations and the rules defining derived relations
     are stored on disk and are accessed as required during query
     evaluation.  The rules defining derived relations are
     expressed in a Prolog-like language, which is also used for
     expressing queries.
     Aditi supports the full structured data capability of Prolog.
     Base relations can store arbitrarily nested terms, for example
     arbitrary length lists, and rules can directly manipulate such
     terms.  Base relations can be indexed with B-trees or
     multi-level signature files.
     Users can access the system through a Motif-based query and
     database administration tool, or through a command line
     interface.  There is also in interface that allows NU-Prolog
     programs to access Aditi in a transparent manner.  Proper
     transaction processing is not supported in this release.
