TITLE: Algebras and the Record Linkage Problem

Abstract: Record Linkage is the process of finding matching records in one or more databases when they lack a common key. When the data contain errors, a common approach is modelling the probability of pairwise matches, and then choosing only the high-probability links. However, that ignores the larger scale structure of the problem which may be important for some problems, particularly those involving many datasets. In this talk, I will discuss some initial ideas related to using the entire graph of matching data, in particular the use of algebraic operators from group theory on the problem.
