An Entity Name System (ENS) is a thesaurus for entities. An ENS is a fundamental component of
systems, serving instance matching needs across multiple data sources. Populating an ENS in support of co-referencing Linked Open Data (LOD) is a Big Data problem.
solutions to the long-standing
(ER) problem are required, meeting specific requirements of
. In this thesis, we propose to develop and implement algorithms for an ER system that address the three key criteria. Preliminary results demonstrate potential system feasibility.
