An Introduction to Dynamic Data Quality Challenges

The Challenge of Test Data Quality in Data Processing

From Content to Context

Research in data and information quality has made significant strides over the last 20 years. It has become a unified body of knowledge incorporating techniques, methods, and applications from a variety of disciplines including information systems, computer science, operations management, organizational behavior, psychology, and statistics.

Jan. 2016 -- New book announcement

 

Carlo Batini and Monica Scannapieco have a new book:

Data and Information Quality: Dimensions, Principles and Techniques 

Springer Series: Data-Centric Systems and Applications, soon available from the Springer shop

The Springer flyer is available here


Experience and Challenge papers:  JDIQ now accepts two new types of papers. Experience papers describe real-world applications, datasets and other experiences in handling poor quality data. Challenges papers briefly describe a novel problem or challenge for the IQ community. See Author Guidelines for details.

Dependable Data Repairing with Fixing Rules

One of the main challenges that data cleaning systems face is to automatically identify and repair data errors in a dependable manner. Though data dependencies (a.k.a. integrity constraints) have been widely studied to capture errors in data, automated and dependable data repairing on these errors has remained a notoriously hard problem. In this work, we introduce an automated approach for dependably repairing data errors, based on a novel class of fixing rules. A fixing rule contains an evidence pattern, a set of negative patterns, and a fact value. The heart of fixing rules is deterministic: given a tuple, the evidence pattern and the negative patterns of a fixing rule are combined to precisely capture which attribute is wrong, and the fact indicates how to correct this error. We study several fundamental problems associated with fixing rules, and establish their complexity. We develop efficient algorithms to check whether a set of fixing rules are consistent, and discuss approaches to resolve inconsistent fixing rules. We also devise efficient algorithms for repairing data errors using fixing rules. Moreover, we discuss approaches on how to generate a large number of fixing rules, from examples or available knowledge bases. We experimentally demonstrate that our techniques outperform other automated algorithms in terms of the accuracy of repairing data errors, using both real-life and synthetic data.

The Challenge of Quality in Social Computation

In applications where machine intelligence falls short (e.g. alignment of taxonomies on the Semantic Web, image annotation, label sorting), so-called social computation approaches that utilise crowds of interconnected human workers offer a viable solution. Computations such as these can be modelled as a collection of structured activities (i.e. workflows) that represent a blend of human and machine tasks. From a data quality perspective, social computations cannot be treated as traditional computational systems and existing quality models will need to be adapted or redesigned to accommodate the unique characteristics of such systems. We argue that only by enhancing the transparency of social computation systems will we be able to realize such novel quality assessment processes.
