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. 


Basic knowledge in the area of database management (DBS I).
