Advanced SIKS-Course: "Probabilistic Methods for Entity Resolution and Entity Ranking"



INTRODUCTION On April 20 and 21 2009 the School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS) will organize an advanced course on "Probabilistic Methods for Entity Resolution and Entity Ranking". The course takes two days, will be given in English and is part of the Advanced Components Stage of the Educational Program for SIKS-PhD Students.
