This talk will highlight some of those benefits and walk through a step-by-step technical example using open source tools. *source: national oceanic and atmospheric administration Economists around the world often rely on limited survey data to...

Will partitioning and sharding improve performance?

What is the best solution to join 2 very big tables (>1TB) with billion rows and hundreds of columns with the help of distribution and partitioning? We have analysed different distribution and partition methods to achieve the best performance for a crossmatch, that is, identifying different rows from 2 tables (star catalogues) referring to the same star. Crossmatching helps scientists around the world to understand better our universe identifying objects observed by different space missions.

Differential privacy (DP) provides formal guarantees that the output of a database query does not reveal too much information about any individual present in the database.

Crucially, existing systems assume that each individual is associated with at most one database record, which is unrealistic in...
