FEVER - Framework for EValuating Entity Resolution
FEVER is a new evaluation platform for entity resolution approaches. The modular structure of the FEVER framework supports the incorporation or reconstruction of many previously proposed approaches for entity resolution. A distinctive feature of FEVER is that it not only evaluates traditional measures such as precision and recall but also the effort for configuring (e.g., parameter tuning, training) a good entity resolution approach.
The above figure illustrates the architecture of FEVER consisting of modules for the definition and execution of entity resolution approaches or so-called match workflows. A GUI-based workflow editor allows to interactively specify match workflows utilizing operator trees. The FEVER runtime executes a specified workflow and, thus, generates evaluation data.
