Some entities are more equal than others: statistical methods to consolidate Linked Data
We propose a method for consolidating entities in RDF data on the Web. Our approach is based on a statistical analysis of the use of predicates and their associated values to identify " quasi "-key properties. Compared to a purely symbolic based approach, we obtain promising results, retrieving more identical entities with a high precision. We also argue that our technique scales well—possibly to the size of the current Web of Data—as opposed to more expensive existing approaches.
