How to ensure deduplication when our data is spread out across multiple data sources? How can we tell that two records are the same? Entity Resolution enables us to answer these questions and to extract value from messy data.

In this session we will dive into what it actually is and why it is important. We will go through some scenarios and follow a live coding example from start to resolution.

Finally, we will discuss many practical considerations such as: preparing your data and schema, how one can assess ranking results and discuss some security aspects.
