Adaptive Query Processing

Kendra Little speculates a bit:

SQL Server 2016 features R Services. This brings the ability to learn patterns and make predictions into the database engine.

Using this new feature came up a lot in the keynote. And not just for performing predictions for a user application, either: there were quite a few references about using SQL Server’s predictive powers to make SQL Server itselfsmarter.

So what might that mean?

It may be speculation, but it’s quite interesting.
