Explore-by-Example: Interactive data exploration in Polypheny (Bachelor Thesis, Ongoing)


Isabel Geissmann


Explore-by-Example is an interactive approach for querying a database without an explicit query. Instead, the user selects entries that should or should not be part of the final result. The system then derives a possible query from the selected entries.

The goal of this project is to implement support for Explore-by-Example (and / or Explore-by-Counter-Example) within Polypheny. This includes a component which analyzes the selected entries and derives a query and the integration into the Polypheny UI. The student can decide whether they prefer to integrate and combine existing implementations or to implement an (existing) approach from scratch.

An important part of this project is the creation of a dataset suitable for testing and optimizing the system. It would furthermore be beneficial to implement unit tests for the backend of the system.
