Improving Grouped-Entity Resolution Using Quasi-Cliques
The entity resolution (ER) problem, which identifies duplicate entities that refer to the same real world entity, is essential in many applications. In this paper, in particular, we focus on resolving entities that contain a group of related elements in them (e.g., an author entity with a list of citations, a singer entity with song list, or an intermediate result by GROUP BY SQL query). Such entities, named as grouped-entities, frequently occur in many applications. The previous approaches toward grouped-entity resolution often rely on textual similarity, and produce a large number of false positives. As a complementing technique, in this paper, we present our experience of applying a recently proposed graph mining technique, Quasi-Clique, atop conventional ER solutions. Our approach exploits contextual information mined from the group of elements per entity in addition to syntactic similarity. Extensive experiments verify that our proposal improves precision and recall up to 83% wh...
