User Feedback as a First Class Citizen in Information Integration Systems
Source: University of Manchester
User feedback is gaining momentum as a means of addressing the difficulties underlying information integration tasks. It can be used to assist users in building information integration systems and to improve the quality of existing systems, e.g., in dataspaces. Existing proposals in the area are confined to specific integration sub-problems considering a specific kind of feedback sought, in most cases, from a single user. The authors argue in this paper that, in order to maximize the benefits that can be drawn from user feedback, it should be considered and managed as a first class citizen.
