Minoan ER: Progressive Entity Resolution in the Web of Data

Abstract : Entity resolution aims to identify descriptions of the same entity within or across knowledge bases. In this work, we present the Minoan ER platform for resolving entities described by linked data in the Web (e.g., in RDF). To reduce the required number of comparisons, Minoan ER performs blocking to place similar descriptions into blocks and executes comparisons to identify matches only between descriptions within the same block. Moreover, it explores in a pay-as-you-go fashion any intermediate results of matching to obtain similarity evidence of entity neighbors and discover new candidate description pairs for resolution.
