These seminars generally cover database internals
as opposed to database usage.  They are similar
to Sailesh's TelegraphCQ talk at our meeting last night.
They do not necessarily include any postgresql content,
but they present what the grad students are doing with
databases these days.

"Building and Evaluating Profile Information in Digital Service 
Provisioning"

Wolf-Tilo Balke, UC Berkeley

Abstract:
User profile information is the key to building advanced database 
applications and providing (Web) services in a deeply personalized 
fashion. The talk will focus on how to collect, manage and describe 
semantically meaningful profile information and how to evaluate service 
requests expanded with this information efficiently. We will see that 
basic techniques from cooperative retrieval like query relaxation, 
ontology-based selection and quality evaluation will be necessary step 
stones in our service provisioning framework towards a large number of 
complex applications like e.g. the digital home. We will also cast a 
critical eye on what communities have to be involved in the research to 
provide a reasonable solution and point to open research questions in 
the area of semantics that still have to be solved.

Bio:
Wolf-Tilo Balke currently is a research fellow at the University of 
California at Berkeley. His research is in the area of information 
systems and service provisioning, focusing on middleware retrieval 
algorithms, preference-based session management, and ontology-based 
discovery and selection of services. Wolf-Tilo Balke is the recipient of 
two Emmy-Noether-Grants of the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the 
Scientific Award of the University Foundation Augsburg. He has received 
his BA and MS degree in mathematics and a PhD in computer science from 
University of Augsburg, Germany.
