Interactive Source Registration in Community-Oriented Information Integration
Source: VLDB Endowment
Modern Internet communities need to integrate and query structured information. Employing current information integration infrastructure, data integration is still a very costly effort, since source registration is performed by a central authority which becomes a bottleneck. The authors propose the community-based integration paradigm which pushes the source registration task to the independent community members. This creates new challenges caused by each community member's lack of a global overview on how her data interacts with the application queries of the community and the data from other sources.
