Ing. Laura Po
Improving Data Integration through Disambiguation Techniques
This event took place on Wednesday 23 July 2008 at 11:30

In this talk I will show how disambiguation techniques can be use to improved Data Integration. In particular, I will briefly illustrate how performing the disambiguation of source elements can supply some useful relationships for the integration process. I will show the CWSD algorithm (Combined Word Sense Disambiguation) we have developed at the DBGROUP at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. Then I will point out some new ideas on a probabilistic way to combine different WSD algorithms.
