EFFECTIVE DATABASE TECHNOLOGY FOR ENGINEERING AND SCIENCE
The research theme of the Database Group emphasizes the
needs of engineering and science applications as the driving forces
behind the development of new database technology and it reflects the
strong interdisciplinary focus of the College of Computing. Database
technology refers collectively to the tools, techniques and methods used
every day in practical applications in business, industry, government and
science. Database technology must be based on science,but it goes a step
further, it applies the science to practical applications.
Focusing on both science and its application unites the
interests of all the faculty in the Database Group. Database technology
is only effective if it is efficient and operative. Our research on
parallel algorithms, incremental computation as well as caching is
fundamental to the development of highly efficient database technology.
Our research on data models, design methodology and user interfaces is
fundamental to the development of database technology that will help
users of database systems.
