Traditional DBSMs are suited for applications in which the structure, meaning and contents of the database, as well as the questions to be asked are already well understood. There is, however, a class of applications that we will collectively refer to as Interactive Data Exploration (IDE) applications, in which this is not the case. IDE is a key ingredient(More)
We present a new interactive data exploration approach, called Semantic Windows (SW), in which users query for multidimensional "windows" of interest via standard DBMS-style queries enhanced with exploration constructs. Users can specify SWs using (i) shape-based properties, e.g., "identify all 3-by-3 windows", as well as (ii) content-based properties,(More)
We present a new system, called Searchlight, that uniquely integrates constraint solving and data management techniques. It allows Constraint Programming (CP) machinery to run efficiently inside a DBMS without the need to extract, transform and move the data. This marriage concurrently offers the rich expressiveness and efficiency of constraint-based search(More)
AIMS Use of a non-invasive electrocardiographic mapping system may aid in rapid diagnosis of atrial or ventricular arrhythmias or the detection of ventricular dyssynchrony. The aim of the present study was to validate the mapping accuracy of a novel non-invasive epi- and endocardial electrophysiology system (NEEES). METHODS AND RESULTS Patients underwent(More)
We present a native XML database management system, Sedna, which is implemented from scratch as a full-featured database management system for storing large amounts of XML data. We believe that the key contribution of this system is an improved schema-based clustering storage strategy efficient for both XML querying and updating, and powered by a novel(More)
1172 The inverse electrocardiography problem in the form of potentials consists in reconstructing the potential on the outer surface of the heart from the potential measured on the chest surface [1, 2]. The study of this problem is motivated by the clinical implementation of new treatment methods for cardiac arrhythmia. Algorithms for solving the inverse(More)
Distribution is a well-known solution to increase performance and provide load balancing in case you need optimal resource utilization. Together with replication it also allows improved reliability, accessibility and fault-tolerance. However since the amount of data is large there is a problem of maintaining meta-information about distribution and finding(More)
Searchlight enables search and exploration of large, multi-dimensional data sets interactively. It allows users to explore by specifying rich constraints for the "objects" they are interested in identifying. Constraints can express a variety of properties, including a shape of the object (e.g., a waveform interval of length 10-100ms), its aggregate(More)
A method for the diagnosis of labyrinthine hydrops is proposed that takes advantage of specific physiological features of internal ear functioning. Namely, the basal membrane of the inner ear exposed to a low-frequency tone undergoes synchronous sinusoidal oscillations along its entire length; simultaneously, sensitivity of the organ of Corti changes(More)
