Standardization and Knowledge Transfer – INS0

  1. 1. INS0 Standardization and Knowledge Transfer – INS0 Mission The mission of the group is to stimulate dissemination and take-up scientific results through concerted actions with e.g., standardization committees. Furthermore, small-scale individual projects in the area of digital libraries are supported pending a better embedding in or outside the institute. Theme leader Prof.dr. M.L.

Database Architectures and Information Access – INS1 Mission The work carried out in the research team INS1 is focused on bridging the gap between database archi- tectures developed for applications in a peer-2-peer (P2P) setting and the need to scale algorithms for multimedia information retrieval beyond a few thousand elements. Such a multidisciplinary approach is considered pivotal to make progress in both scientific fields. The research line on multimedia information retrieval aims at developing a multimedia database system, which can offer a high level of abstraction to both developers of end-user applications and re- searchers working on content analysis techniques. At the core of such a system we envision a sound and flexible probabilistic model to steer the retrieval process, integrated with query optimizers and ker- nel functionality. The advanced database architectures research thread is focused on the key challenges posed by P2P networks as a platform for distributed and heterogeneous datamanagement. This involves research in all architectural components of a contemporary DBMS to assess, enrich, or replace it to cope with the ad-hoc nature of said networks. A key scientific challenge is to find the proper balance between theoretical optimal solutions in the context of hard resource limitations and application demands. Both research lines are supported by activities geared at bridging the technology gap itself using our MonetDB experimentation platform. This involves research into novel ways (algorithms, datas- tructures and software stack) to exploit the potential power of custom hardware and research in query optimization (language specific, adaptive, cost-models) to achieve a more modular solution. The sys- tem is widely distributed to provide others a sound and modern database platform, but also to import user experiences on the choices made. Theme leader Prof.dr. M.L.
