Devnexus 2012

DEVNEXUS 2012

We are having an incredible line-up of presenters covering a wide array of crucial topics. Also, this year we are expanding to 6 tracks with 48 sessions and 3 keynotes! In addition to providing great content for Java developers, DevNexus is a very valuable networking opportunity. This event attracts Java/JVM talent from the South-East’s largest corporations, software companies and consulting organizations. You will have an opportunity to discover what other development teams are using as their favorite tools and practices.

What?

Atlanta’s most exciting conference for professional software developers is back in 2012! Come discover how the industry’s best minds use the latest technologies to build solutions to business problems. Network with other Atlanta software developers, and study real life case studies in application design and development.

Our first five conference events were tremendous successes. Skip the travel headaches, expense, and mobs of people at other conferences and join us this March to experience one of the best developer conferences, presented by your fellow developers, right in the heart of the Southeast (and in your own backyard).

This conference is an incredible value. Not only do we provide exceptional speakers and presentations but we also provide book raffles, food, a cocktail hour for networking and mingling with the speakers and much more.

Make sure to sign up early to ensure you get a seat this year!

Large-scale Entity Extraction and Probabilistic Record Linkage

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Large-scale entity extraction, disambiguation and linkage in Big Data can challenge the traditional methodologies developed over the last three decades. Entity linkage, in particular, is cornerstone for a wide spectrum of applications, such as Master Data Management, Data Warehousing, Social Graph Analytics, Fraud Detection and Identity Management. Traditional rules based heuristic methods usually don’t scale properly, are language specific and require significant maintenance over time.

We will introduce the audience to the use of probabilistic record linkage, also known as specificity based linkage, on Big Data, to perform language independent large-scale entity extraction, resolution and linkage across diverse sources. We will also present a live demonstration reviewing the different steps required during the data integration process (ingestion, profiling, parsing, cleansing, standardization and normalization), and show the basic concepts behind probabilistic record linkage on a real-world application.
