    Digital government projects are bringing together researchers from the technical and social sciences to participate in interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary collaborations that have the potential for making a broad and significant impact. We suspect that two distinct clusters are emerging in DG research: new IT tools for solving government problems on the one hand and, on the other, understandin... View full abstract»

    A general-purpose solution to the problem of matching entities within or across heterogeneous data sources can't depend on the presence or reliability of auxiliary data such as structural information or metadata. Instead, it must leverage the available data (or observations) that describe the entities. Our technology, based on information theory principles, measures the importance of observations ...
