Data Sets for Data Fusion Experiments

The amount of useful information available on the Web has been growing at a dramatic pace in recent years and people rely more and more on the Web to fulfill their information needs. However, there is a large amount of discrepancy on data provided by different Web sources and some Web sources could have quite low accuracy. Data fusion aims at resolving the conflicts and finding the truth that reflects the real world. We list below several data sets we used for experiments on data fusion techniques.

I. Stock (Contributors: Xian Li, Kenneth B. Lyons)

We collected trading data of 1000 stock symbols from 55 sources on every work day in July 2011. Detailed description of the data can be found at

  2. Information on NASDAQ100 stocks collected by taking the majority values provided by five stock data providers: nasdaq.com, yahoo finance, google finance, bloomberg and MSN finance. [download]

  3. Information on NASDAQ100 stocks and another 100 randomly selected stocks collected by taking the majority values provided by five stock data providers: nasdaq.com, yahoo finance, google finance, bloomberg and MSN finance. [download]

 

II. Flight (Contributors: Xian Li, Kenneth B. Lyons)

We collected information of over 1200 flights from 38 sources over 1-month period (December 2011). Detailed description of the data can be found at

III. Book (Contributors: Xiaoxin Yin, Luna Dong)

Information on Computer Science books was collected from online bookstore aggregator AbeBooks.com in 2007. There are in total 1263 books and 894 data sources (bookstores). Detailed description of the data can be found at

  1. Gold standard: Precise author lists manually obtained from book covers on 100 randomly selected books. [download]

  2. Silver standard: Author lists for all books. When different fusion methods reach agreement, we used the results; otherwise, we manually obtained the author lists from book covers (for more than 500 books). [download]

 

IV. Restaurant (Contributors: Laure Berti-Equille, Luna Dong)

We collected Manhattan restaurants listed by 12 websites weekly in Jan-Mar, 2009. Detailed description of the data can be found at

V. Weather (Contributors: Laure Berti-Equille, Luna Dong)

We collected weather data on 30 major USA cities from 18 websites every 45 minutes on a day in Mar, 2010. Detailed description of the data can be found at
