Motivated by fundamental applications in databases and relational machine learning, we formulate and study the problem of answering functional aggregate queries (FAQ) in which some of the input factors are defined by a collection of additive inequalities between variables. We refer to these queries as FAQ-AI for short. We present three applications of our FAQ-AI framework to relational machine learning: k-means clustering, training linear support vector machines, and training models using non-polynomial loss.
