Discovering and reconciling value conflicts for numerical data integration

Weiguo Fan, Hongjun Lu, Stuart E. Madnick, David Cheung
2001 Information Systems  
A general approach is proposed to discover data value conversion rules from the data.  ...  To facilitate data integration, data value conversion rules are proposed to describe the quantitative relationships among data values involving context dependent conflicts.  ...  In this paper, we describe a statisticsbased prototype system for integrating numerical financial and business data, DIRECT (discovering and reconciling conflicts).  ...

Discovering and Reconciling Semantic Conflicts: A Data Mining Perspective [chapter]

Hongjun Lu, Weiguo Fan, Cheng Hian Goh, Stuart E. Madnick, David W. Cheung
1998 Data Mining and Reverse Engineering  
In this paper, we demonstrate that the detection and reconciliation of semantic conflicts can be automated using tools and techniques developed by the data mining community.  ...  We describe a process for discovering such rules that represent the relationships among semanticaly related attributes and illustrate the effectiveness of our approach with examples.  ...  This is typically accomplished by the system integrator or DBA who is responsible for the integration project.  ...

A Context-Based Approach to Reconciling Data Interpretation Conflicts in Web Services Composition

Xitong Li, Stuart E. Madnick, Hongwei Zhu
2013 ACM Transactions on Internet Technology  
To address them, we develop an approach to automatic detection and reconciliation of data interpretation conflicts in Web services composition.  ...  detect the conflicts and produce the corresponding mediated BPEL by incorporating appropriate conversions into the composition.  ...  The approach consists of methods for representing semantic assumptions and mediation algorithms for identifying conflicts and rewriting the BPEL to reconcile the identified conflicts.  ...

Between Religion and Science: Integrating Psychological and Philosophical Accounts of Explanatory Coexistence

Cristine H. Legare, Aku Visala
2011 Human Development  
We review psychological data from three core biological domains and provide an analysis of how philosophical and psychological accounts are complementary.  ...  Although cognitive developmental psychologists have studied the topic of explanation quite extensively, until recently little has been known about how people interpret, accommodate, and reconcile natural  ...  One of the ways individuals reconcile natural and supernatural explanations for the origins of species is to integrate these explanations into a single causal chain, as in theistic evolution [Evans, 2008  ...
