MIT Makes Database Creation Easier

The Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) launched a prototype version of a tool that can help spreadsheet users create custom database interfaces without expertise in complex scripting languages or data manipulation. “The program’s home screen looks like a spreadsheet, but it lets users build their own database queries and reports by combining functions familiar to any spreadsheet user,” according to the press release. “Simple drop-down menus let the user pull data into the tool from multiple sources. The user can then sort and filter the data, recombine it using algebraic functions, and hide unneeded columns and rows, and the tool will automatically generate the corresponding database queries.”

For more information, read the press release.
