About the Event

In this talk, I will examine why database systems today are so difficult to use and identify a set of five pain points. I will describe the work we have been doing in my research group on database usability, and propose a research agenda to address these pain points. The central issue is one of understanding where structure in the data is crucial, where it is unnecessary, and how to map between database structures and user mental models.
