High-Speed Statistical Processing In A Database
WARF: P110172US01

Inventors: Benjamin Recht, Christopher Re

The Invention
Numerically intensive statistical processing of data is implemented as an incremental gradient method within the engine of a database system. Small user-defined functions in the database system calculate an approximate gradient from one term of a linearly separable defined cost resolvable from a single tuple of the database. In this way the optimized data access of the database may be exploited for rapid statistical processing.
