An attribute dictionary is a set of attributes together with a set of common values of each attribute. Such dictionaries are valuable in understanding unstructured or loosely structured textual descriptions of entity collections, such as product catalogs. Dictionaries provide the supervised data for learning product or entity descriptions. In this demonstration, we will present AutoDict, a system that analyzes input data records, and discovers high quality dictionaries using information
