Record linkage is an important data integration task that has many practical uses for matching, merging and duplicate removal in large and diverse databases. However, quadratic scalability for the brute force approach of comparing all possible pairs of records necessitates the design of appropriate indexing or blocking techniques. The aim of these techniques is to cheaply remove candidate record pairs that are unlikely to match. We design and evaluate an eficient and highly scalable blocking...[Show more]
