TITLE:Preference-Aware Database Systems
The handling of user preferences is becoming an increasingly important
issue in present-day information systems. Among others, preferences are
used for information filtering and extraction to reduce the large volume
of data presented to a user. They are also used to keep track of user
profiles and formulate policies to improve and automate decision making.
However, personalization of information systems poses new challenges to
database technology, demanding a powerful and flexible modeling
technique for complex user preferences. In my talk, I will address the
concept of preferences in database systems: I will give an overview on
preference engineering and preference algebra, the PreferenceSQL system
for personalized database queries, preference optimization, and parallel
and distributed algorithms for efficient preference evaluation. I will
present open issues and my current research activities as well as future
work and trends in preference-based databases.
