Computer Science Department of State University
of New York at Stony Brook
  • Presented by Bin He

History and status
  • Established in 1969
  • Research ranked 33rd in US
  • 41 faculty members
  • expected to recruit additional members in the
    next few years, including databases!!!
  • in a stage of significant expansion, including a
    new Computer Science building, along with a new
    New York State Center of Excellence in Wireless
    and Information Technology (CEWIT)

7
David S. Warren
  • 1979 PhD, University of Michigan
  • currently Leading Professor of Computer Science
  • ACM Fellow
  • chairman of the Stony Brook CS Department from
    1996-1999
  • Main research focus Logic programming
  • Students Juliana Freire, Utah

8
Main project XSB-- a logic programming and
deductive database system
  • An open source logic programming system, extends
    Prolog with new semantic and operational features
    http//xsb.sourceforge.net/
  • Based on the use of Tabled Logic Programming or
    tabling
  • Useful for parsing, program analysis,
    model-checking, data mining and Diagnosis

9
Intuition of tabling
  • Cache of logic computation
  • Cache the subgoal of a computation
  • During computation of a goal to a logic program,
    each subgoal S is registered in a table the first
    time it is called, and unique answers to S are
    added to the table as they are derived.
  • When subsequent calls are made to S, the
    evaluation ensures that answers to S are read
    from the table rather than being re-derived using
    program clauses.
  • Further, cache other global elements of a
    computation in the table, e.g., information about
    whether one subgoal depends on another, and
    whether the dependency is through negation

Michael Kifer
  • 1985 PhD, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel

  • Main research focus declarative languages for
    data, object-oriented databases, query
    optimization, logic programming
  • Test of Time Award from ACM SIGMOD
  • 1999 F-Logic A Higher Order Language for
    Reasoning About Objects, Inheritance, and Scheme.
    Michael Kifer and Georg Lausen
  • 2002 Querying Object-Oriented Databases. M.
    Kifer, W. Kim, and Y. Sagiv
  • Students Hasan Davulcu, ASU
  • Son Dan Kifer, Cornell Database Group,
  • Advisor Johannes Gehrke

11
Books
  • Database Systems An Application Oriented
    Approach
  • Databases and Transaction Processing
  • Michael Kifer, Arthur Bernstein,
    Philip M. Lewis
  • Arthur Bernstein
  • Emeritus Professor,
  • Transaction Processing

12
Main project Flora-- An object-oriented
knowledge base language and application
development environment
  • http//flora.sourceforge.net/
  • Flora-2 a dialect of F-logic with numerous
    extensions, e.g., meta-programming in the style
    of HiLog and logical updates in the style of
    Transaction Logic
  • Applications of Flora-2 include intelligent
    agents, Semantic Web, ontology management,
    integration of information, and others
  • Relies on the XSB inference engine

    University, advisor Jeff Ullman
  • PhD thesis Selection and Maintenance of Views in
    a Data Warehouse
  • Seems shifting from DB to wireless networking, in
