New EPSRC Grant Award

Prof. Leonid Libkin has been awarded an EPSRC Established Career Fellowship. The grant’s title is “MAGIC: MAnaGing InComplete Data – New Foundations“, and its total amount is £1.14M over 5 years, starting 1 August 2016.

The main goal of this research programme is to deliver new understanding of uncertain and incomplete information in data processing tasks, and by doing so to provide new ways of getting knowledge out of such data. It will reconcile correctness guarantees with an efficient algorithmic toolkit that scales to large data sets, and put an end to perceived impossibility of achieving correctness and efficiency simultaneously for large classes of queries over incomplete data.
