Database research addresses the problem of storage and retrieval of data. Information must be stored in a fashion that allows both efficient and convenient retrieval by people and applications. Specific problems addressed in research at UCF include techniques for parallel and distributed processing of very large data sets, database management as a service, moving object databases for mobile computing, querying multimedia databases that may include online cameras as a special class of storage devices, database management in the Internet of Things, and data privacy and security.
