Data quality:

  • should be assessed from the beginning

  • Kemele (Bonn)  working on change detection

  • Jeremy (Bonn) & Kamal (St-É) working on quality assessment

  • need better algorithms; Kamal investigates machine learning, avoids recomputation on changes

  • related workshops at ESWC 2015: DIACHRON workshop (deadline 6th March, likely extended soon) + Linked Data Quality (deadline 16th March, already extended)
