Abstrakti

Web systems have become a valuable source of semi-structured and streaming data. In this sense, Entity Resolution (ER) has become a key solution for integrating multiple data sources or identifying similarities between data items, namely entities. To avoid the quadratic costs of the ER task and improve efficiency, blocking techniques are usually applied. Beyond the traditional challenges faced by ER and, consequently, by the blocking techniques, there are also challenges related to streaming data, incremental processing, and noisy data. To address them, we propose a schema-agnostic blocking technique capable of handling noisy and streaming data incrementally through a distributed computational infrastructure. To the best of our knowledge, there is a lack of blocking techniques that address these challenges simultaneously. This work proposes two strategies (attribute selection and top-n neighborhood entities) to minimize resource consumption and improve blocking efficiency. Moreover, this work presents a noise-tolerant algorithm, which minimizes the impact of noisy data (e.g., typos and misspellings) on blocking effectiveness. In our experimental evaluation, we use real-world pairs of data sources, including a case study that involves data from Twitter and Google News. The proposed technique achieves better results regarding effectiveness and efficiency compared to the state-of-the-art technique (metablocking). More precisely, the application of the two strategies over the proposed technique alone improves efficiency by 56%, on average.
