Design and Evaluation of Incremental Data Structures and Algorithms for Dynamic Query Interfaces
MetadataShow full item record
Dynamic query interfaces (DQI) are a recently developed database access mechanism that provides continuous real-time feedback to the user during query formulation. Previous work shows that DQI are an elegant and powerful interface to small databases. Unfortunately, when applied to large databases, previous DQI algorithms slow to a crawl. We present a new incremental approach to DQI algorithms that works well with large databases, both in theory and in practice.
