Event web site: USPTO Symposium on Entity Resolution

The symposium brought together computer scientists, information scientists, economists, and others to discuss state-of-the-art approaches to, and current practices and applications of, entity resolution, with a particular focus on patent applications. The goals of the symposium were (1) to provide an overview of current approaches from leading scholars in the field; (2) to build knowledge; (3) to identify a community of practitioners; and (4) to facilitate the application of common approaches.
