A Clustering Approach for Holistic Link Discovery (Project overview)
Proc. Lernen. Wissen. Daten. Analysen. (LWDA), Potsdam, September 2016, CEUR


Pairwise link discovery approaches for the Web of Data do not scale to many sources thereby limiting the potential for data integration. We thus propose a holistic approach for linking many data sources based on a clustering of entities representing the same real-world object. Our clustering approach utilizes existing links and can deal with entities of different semantic types. The approach is able to identify errors in existing links and can find numerous additional links. An initial evaluation on real-world linked data shows the effectiveness of the proposed holistic entity matching.
