Hi all:
The LD4 Community Working Group on Reconciliation & Resolution is an
open group working within the LD4L / LD4L Labs / LD4P broader family. A
common theme we've experienced is trying to take our data and match
concepts with other datasets - it is a big, messy problem with few (if
any) common solutions across domains. As such, our Working Group is
trying to pull together, analyze, find commonalities, and propose some
pragmatic solutions to needs around entity resolution and reconciliation
in our data. You can see our group's charge, shared understandings, and
work plan here if you'd like to learn more:
https://github.com/LD4/ld4-community-recon
As part of this effort, we want to hear from you. If you're able, please
take 10-15 minutes to share with us your needs around entity matching -
whether it is taking string values and matching them to external
authorities, having two entity identifiers that you need to determine if
they're the same or not, capturing whether two ontologies' use of a
class are not the same, or other. We want this to be as broad a
collection of use cases, functional requirements, current services, or
other needs and workflows for entity resolution and reconciliation with
your data (and this is not limited to Linked Data!). You can share your
needs with use by opening an issue on this Github repository, or if
uncomfortable with using GitHub, emailing Arwen (***@***.***) or
Christina (***@***.***), this group's conveners.
We'll begin reviewing use cases in the second half of August (starting
with our open call on August 14th, see here:
https://github.com/LD4/ld4-community-recon/wiki/2017-08-14.md), so we
hope you'll take a moment sooner rather than later to add your needs. If
you want to follow this group's work, including the analysis and output
based on this collection, follow our GitHub repository here:

Thank you for considering!
