Description

Imagine you can help decision makers in large organizations by creating a uniform, cleaned, and trusted data set out of their multitude of heterogeneous information sources. This lecture introduces techniques to address this ever-important topic. It covers different architectures, matching and mapping approaches, query processing, and data cleansing.

We focus on structured information, but briefly discuss how to deal with textual information sources.

The lecture will be given by Dr. Armin Roth (IBM).

Schedule

The lecture will take place the week from October 9th - 13th, from 09:15 am - 04:45 pm at Campus III, G-3.E.15/16.
