    Tasks like image recognition are trivial for humans, but continue to challenge even the most sophisticated computer programs. This talk discusses a paradigm for utilizing human processing power to solve problems that computers cannot yet solve. Traditional approaches to solving such problems focus on improving software. I advocate a novel approach: constructively channel human brainpower to perfor... View full abstract»

    Each DBMS represents a solution in a design space covering hundreds of parameters. The sheer size of this space leaves large parts unexplored, but also requires courage. The open-source MonetDB system is used to exemplify the pitfalls and opportunities of such an exploration into the realm of column-stores. We illustrate the vistas of high-risk projects based on radical changes in the design param... View full abstract»

    The goal of the BioACT Project at Stanford is to help biodiversity researchers Acquire digital materials in the field, manage these online holdings (Curate), and Transfer the knowledge (or disseminate) to other researchers, museums, and the public. We are developing three sets of tools: (i) tools for speedy data entry and small-group collaboration in the field, (ii) tools for large scale collabora... View full abstract»

    The infamous prediction "I think there is a world market for maybe five computers," was allegedly made by Thomas Watson, Sr. Perhaps he was merely a little ahead of his time, if he was referring to farms of computers accessed over networks, i.e., "computers in the clouds." Mainframes once dominated the computing landscape, drawing programmers from afar to submit their applications, along with burn... View full abstract»

    A fundamental problem in information integration is that of designing the relationships, called schema mappings, between two schemas. The specification of a semantically correct schema mapping is typically a complex task. Automated tools can suggest potential mappings, but few tools are available for helping a designer understand mappings and design alternative mappings. We describe Muse, a mappin...
