Turbo speed for Big Data: Computer scientist wants to “breed” extremely fast and efficient databases

Computer science professor Jens Dittrich and his team at Saarland University are developing a new approach to optimizing databases that looks set to turn previously used methodologies on their head –away from hand-crafted search methods and towards automatically generated ones. The team uses what are known as evolutionary algorithms to ‘breed’ the best possible results. The paper in which they present the concept has been published in the proceedings of one of the world’s largest [...]
