Many different data sets, generated by users, systems and sensors, are continuously being collected. While the benefit of data exploration becomes increasingly more prominent, the limitations of existing tools make accessing and combining data from different sources a non-trivial, time-consuming, and often fruitless endeavor. In this talk Dr. Georgia Koutrika will discuss about what it takes to bridge the gap between users and data, and the new generation of intelligent data exploration tools.

She is editor-in-chief for the VLDB Journal, associate editor for the IEEE Transaction on Knowledge and Data Engineering, and an ACM Distinguished Speaker.
