Vector type support in a distributed database (Master Project, Finished)


Nils Hansen


The goal of this project is to implement vector support in Polypheny-DB. The vector type needs to support two parameters: the type (integer, double, ...) and the dimension. The integration into Poylpheny should include:

As an extension, the candidate can also implement one or multiple distance functions operating on this new data type.

While implementing vector support in Polypheny-DB, the candidate should also address other issues. These issues are organized in a GitHub project and mainly cover the following areas:

We do not expect the student to take care of all issues listed in the GitHub project. The student can and should skip issues that require more effort than originally expected.
