(Onsite Talk) Speech Title: LLM and Data Quality Management Research
Abstract: Large language models can achieve state-of-the-art performance on a range of natural language processing tasks, such as language translation, text classification, and question-answering. As LLMs can be used to capture semantic and contextual information, it is natural to explore how LLMs can be used for the task of entity linking, which is an important task to identify and match entities (such as people, organizations, or products) across different datasets. Entity matching as a database research topic is conducted among structured data (i.e., records in database tables). In this talk, we will present a review on entity-matching research from the early work of using rule-based or statistical approaches to recent approaches based on deep learning and pre-trained models with finetuning, and the current approaches using foundation models. We will identify the research trends and gaps in this new area, and present our work on using LLM for database entity matching research.
