At Database Exploration Lab (DBXLab), we seek to investigate fundamental research issues arising in Big Data. Our research encompasses diverse areas such as data mining, information retrieval, data uncertainty and probabilistic methods, approximate query processing, data summarization, data analytics and data exploration of hidden web databases, social and collaborative media.
