Deep Learning Driven Natural Languages Text to SQL Query Conversion: A Survey

8 Aug 2022  ·  Ayush Kumar, Parth Nagarkar, Prabhav Nalhe, Sanjeev Vijayakumar ·

With the future striving toward data-centric decision-making, seamless access to databases is of utmost importance. There is extensive research on creating an efficient text-to-sql (TEXT2SQL) model to access data from the database. Using a Natural language is one of the best interfaces that can bridge the gap between the data and results by accessing the database efficiently, especially for non-technical users. It will open the doors and create tremendous interest among users who are well versed in technical skills or not very skilled in query languages. Even if numerous deep learning-based algorithms are proposed or studied, there still is very challenging to have a generic model to solve the data query issues using natural language in a real-work scenario. The reason is the use of different datasets in different studies, which comes with its limitations and assumptions. At the same time, we do lack a thorough understanding of these proposed models and their limitations with the specific dataset it is trained on. In this paper, we try to present a holistic overview of 24 recent neural network models studied in the last couple of years, including their architectures involving convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural networks, pointer networks, reinforcement learning, generative models, etc. We also give an overview of the 11 datasets that are widely used to train the models for TEXT2SQL technologies. We also discuss the future application possibilities of TEXT2SQL technologies for seamless data queries.
