Article summary:

1. Hashing is a core operation in most online databases, but collisions can occur when two pieces of data are hashed with the same value, resulting in slower searches and reduced performance.

2. Researchers from MIT and elsewhere have found that using learned models instead of traditional hash functions can result in half as many collisions and be more computationally efficient than perfect hash functions in certain situations.

3. Learned models were easier to build and faster to run than perfect hash functions, leading to fewer collisions and better throughput when data were predictably distributed. The researchers plan to use learned models to design hash functions for other types of data and explore learned hashing for databases where data can be inserted or deleted.
