Enabling visual data exploration at ``human speed'' is key to democratizing data science and maximizing human productivity. Unfortunately, traditional data management systems or more recent analytical frameworks, like Hadoop and Spark, are ill-suited for that purpose. Similar current machine learning algorithms and other analytical techniques are not designed for returning fast progressive answer.

The goal of this research seminar is to study recently proposed techniques to make data exploration over large data sets more interactive, participate in the development of the next generation of interactive data exploration systems and through it make a active research contribution.
