Research project In this project we develop stochastic models and corresponding tools to handle databases with uncertain data
A significant and vast growing part of data stored in modern databases are uncertain due to essential randomness (e.g., in bioinformatics, medicine, telecommunication, economics) or due to incorrect, missing and noisy data (e.g., official databases). At the same time we need to use these data as well. This leads to qualitatively new interdisciplinary problems both for statistics and for computer science. Database systems are developed for correct data models and new tools are needed to retrieve and evaluate information in these uncertain data sets. This project aims at developing new statistical models and techniques for database computations with uncertain data.
