SLINT+[1](Schema-Independent Linked Data Interlinking) detects all owl:sameAs links between two given linked data sources. An owl:sameAs link declares the identity relationship of two instances, which co-referring to the same real-world object.

How does it work?

The architecture of SLINT+

The architecture of SLINT+

  • Predicate selection collects the important predicates from all predicates of input data source DS and DT
  • Predicate alignment combines important predicates to construct raw alignments and select the useful alignments using their confidence.
  • Candidate generation finds identity candidates by grouping similar instances into one cluster.
  • Instance matching verifies all candidates and produces the final owl:sameAs alignments.
