This paper developed the theoretical foundation of discriminative learning over relational data, showing how one can exploit the relational structures in the data and the feature extraction query to speed up model training.

Integrated solutions for analytics over relational databases are of great practical importance as they avoid the costly repeated loop data scientists have to deal with on a daily basis: select features from data residing in relational databases using feature extraction queries involving joins, projections, and aggregations; export the training dataset defined by such queries; convert this dataset into the format of an external learning tool; and train the desired model using this tool. These integrated solutions are also a fertile ground of theoretically fundamental and challenging problems at the intersection of relational and statistical data models.

This talk explores several techniques to improve the runtime performance of machine learning by taking advantage of the underlying structure of relational data. While most data scientists use relational data in their work, the data science tooling that works with relational data is quite lacking today. Let’s explore these new techniques and see how we can drastically improve machine learning through a database-oriented lens.Read More
