Clink - A Novel Record Linkage Methodology based on Graph Interactions

Mahmoud Boghdady, Neamat El-Tazi

Abstract

With the advent of the big-data era and the rapid growth of the amount of data, companies are faced with more opportunities and challenges to outperform their peers, innovate, compete, and capture value from big-data platforms such as social networks. Utilizing the full benefit of social media requires companies to identify their own customers against customers as a whole by linking their local data against data from social media applying record-linkage techniques that differ from simple to complex. For large sources that have huge data and fewer constraints over data, the linking process produces low quality results and requires a lot of pairwise comparisons. We propose a study on how to calculate similarity score not only based on string similarity techniques or topological graph similarity, but also using graph interactions between nodes to effectively achieve better linkage results.
