Record linkage is an important problem to be solved in all contexts in which data integration is to be performed under the hypothesis of data sources that can exhibit errors. In this paper, the authors formulate the record linkage problem as a multi-objective optimization problem and they propose an algorithm for solving it based on evolutionary computation. This computational paradigm has a stochastic, adaptive and intrinsically parallel nature that makes it particularly suitable for a peer-to-peer integration context.
