We are in the exciting era where AI and Database technologies are colliding and merging. In this talk, I will introduce the motivations and several opportunities to integrate machine learning/deep learning and database research, in both directions. As a case study, I will focus on a new deep learning-based model for range selectivity estimation for high-dimensional data. The model is guaranteed to be consistent, i.e., monotonic in the threshold parameter, and has demonstrated superior performance against state-of-the-art methods in all error measures across several datasets and distance/similarity functions.
