Selective Information Dissemination on the Real-time Web - A Database Perspective

Presented on 20 May at WEBIST 2015

Keynote Lecturer: Bernd Amann

Abstract: From its creation the web was designed for disseminating information in a large, world-wide scale. Its development was then continuously governed by the need of making the dissemination process more and more efficient and today, major software companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google generate their benefits by offering efficient services for gathering, filtering, ranking and exchanging highly dynamic information on the web. The LIP6 database group explores this kind of services from a database perspective by extending existing or defining new high-level declarative data models and languages and low-level data management and query optimization techniques. In this talk I will present a representative selection of our contributions and anticipate some future evolutions and challenges.
