Title: Data Integration Coming of Age in the Semantic Web
Date: Dec. 7th
Time: 1:30pm
Place: ACES 2.404B

Committee member: Dan Miranker, Peter Stone, Raymond Mooney

Abstract: The advent of the public Internet came with a promise to
interconnect databases all around the world. However, the integration
of data is still an open research problem that requires people to solve.
The scale of the web underscores the
need for automating the integration process.

An emerging technology, the Semantic Web, provides a common framework
to share and reuse data across application, enterprise,
and community boundaries.
Data integration in the Semantic web raises
new research topics.

The first part of the talk will explain the research problems of data
integration on relational databases, and the new problem definitions
on the Semantic Web. The second part will present our recent data
integration system on the Semantic Web.
