This course deals with the integration and analysis of heterogeneous data-a topic of significant research as well as practical importance. A typical large organization spends around 30% of all its IT effort and expense for data/information integration. Furthermore, organizations can greatly increase their competitiveness by exploiting the data they collect, and discovering trends and patterns leading to insights. Hugh repositories of public data on the Web also provide opportunity to discovery undiscovered public knowledge.
