AKSW Colloquium, 12 October, 3pm, A High Performance Approach to String Distance using Most Frequent K Characters

Andre Valdestilhas¬†will present the current state of his work¬†“A High Performance Approach to String Distance using Most Frequent K Characters”.

Abstract

The idea is to reduce the computation in Link Discovery using and improving a String Distance Function called Most Frequent K Characters in order to get the Euclidean distance between two strings with a high performance. In order to do that we did experiments implementing a threshold and filters that allow skip cases when the distance between two strings are so much that no need to do a the whole computation. Also, we did experiments with parallel and GPU, also with a performance gain.
