Query Understanding and Optimization

Project Plan


Description :

Database queries are usually formulated using a rigid syntax that can be tedious to specify. The goal of this project is to create a system that allows to specify queries partially in natural language, thereby lowering the entry barrier for non-computer scientist users. Parsing natural language is however still very difficult for computers. This is why we plan to use crowdsourcing in order to integrate human workers into the query parsing and optimization process.
