Schema Free Querying of Semantic Data


Slides for Lushan Han's dissertation defense, Schema Free Querying of Semantic Data.

Developing interfaces to enable casual, non-expert users to query complex structured data has been the subject of much research over the past forty years. We refer to them as as schema-free query interfaces, since they allow users to freely query data without understanding its schema, knowing how to refer to objects, or mastering the appropriate formal query language. Schema-free query interfaces address fundamental problems in natural language processing, databases and AI to connect users' conceptual models and machine representations.
