In this seminar, we join the Metanome project and design advanced profiling algorithms to be used in practice.


  • Knowledge in programming Java is needed, since Metanome is written in Java
  • Knowledge in data profiling and in particular functional dependencies (e.g., from the Data Profiling and Data Cleansing lecture) is a nice-to-have, but it is not a prerequisite and can also be obtained in this course.


  • Active participation in meetings and discussions
  • Implementation of the baseline algorithm using the Metanome interface
  • Implementation of (at least one) algorithmic enhancement
  • Mid-term presentation
  • End-term presentation
  • Final paper-style submission


Mondays, 15.15-16.45
