Title: Inconsistency management in data and knowledge bases

Instructor: Prof. Leopoldo Bertossi (Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada)

Where: DIAG, Via Ariosto 25

When: Sept. 30 - End date: Oct. 11

Abstract:

Dealing with inconsistencies within data and knowledge bases is a hot and challenging topic, which needs to be faced within real-world applications, both while querying and while updating the data. Several solutions have been proposed in the literature, which range from data cleaning to consistent query answering and update.

This course aims at introducing the problem of querying and updating inconsistent data, following a logical perspective. It further aims at illustrating the computational complexity of the aforementioned problems, and at presenting the current most successful techniques to solve them, both within the databases and the knowledge representation systems areas.
