Abstract
As user-generated content (including multimedia content) explodes, the amount of space used for storing the data and auxiliary supporting data structures becomes a major factor in query and update performance. This talk presents a new storage scheme for annotated user-generated content that supports navigational operations in constant time. In addition to supporting efficient queries, the space requirement of the proposed scheme is within a constant factor of the information theoretic minimum, while insertions and deletions can be performed in near constant time as well. As a result, the proposed structure features a small memory footprint that increases cache locality, whilst still supporting standard APIs, such as DOM, and necessary database operations, such as queries and updates, efficiently. This talk also discusses our new results in integrating the topology representation with block-based text compression. Finally, a live demonstration will be presented after the talk. A similar demonstration was presented at CeBIT (Australia) 2007 and won the Early Innovator Award.
