Abstract

Keyword search and database query are two ways for retrieving data in real world settings. In this demonstration, we show SUITS, a novel search interface over relational databases that smoothly integrates the flexibility of keyword search and the precision of database queries. SUITS allows users to start with arbitrary keyword queries, refine them incrementally by following the suggestions given by the system and finally obtain desired structured queries.
