Venue: F. C. Kohli Auditorium, B Block, 01st Floor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Kanwal Rekhi (KReSIT) Building
Conventional wisdom says good things come in threes. Recently I reflected on the research I've conducted over my career to date and selected my three favorite results, which I will cover in this talk. For each one I'll explain the context and motivation, the result itself, and why it ranks as one of my favorites. I'll also make an attempt to decipher what the results have in common. The three results span computer science foundations, system implementation, and user interface questions, and they represent three of my favorite research areas: semistructured data, data streams, and uncertain data.
