Object-sensitivity has emerged as an excellent context abstraction for points-to analysis in object-oriented languages. Despite its practical success, however, object-sensitivity is poorly understood. For instance, for a context depth of 2 or higher, past scalable implementations deviate significantly from the original definition of an object-sensitive analysis. The reason is that the analysis has many degrees of freedom, relating to which context elements are picked at every method call and object creation. We offer a clean model for the analysis design space, and discuss a formal and informal understanding of object-sensitivity and of how to create good object-sensitive analyses. The results are surprising in their extent.
Molham shares some history of relational databases, trends in modern cloud-native database systems, and the innovations pioneered at RelationalAI to bring deep learning with relations from idea to reality.Read More
This incredible panel of experts gathered to discuss the current state of AI and machine learning workloads inside databases. The panel discussed new techniques, technologies, and recent papers that progress our understanding of what is possible. Q&A among the panel and from the audience concludes this deep and wide ranging conversation.Read More
This talk explores several techniques to improve the runtime performance of machine learning by taking advantage of the underlying structure of relational data. While most data scientists use relational data in their work, the data science tooling that works with relational data is quite lacking today. Let’s explore these new techniques and see how we can drastically improve machine learning through a database-oriented lens.Read More
