Project description

The project aims at studying the data fusion problem, where multiple coreferent (i.e. duplicate) objects need to be fused into one optimal representation. The concrete goal is to fill some gaps in existing fusion theory such as complex fusion functions and fusion functions for (multi)sets. Results can be applied in (semi)-structured database cleansing and Multi Document Summarization.
