Finding patterns and insights in data
Our work in this area focuses on solving key problems in database architecture and information management. Our current areas of focus are infrastructure for large-scale database systems; reducing the total cost of ownership of information management; enabling flexible ways to query, browse, and organize rich data sets containing both structured and unstructured data; and the management of database schemas and mappings.
