Information Integration for the Masses

Jim Blythe, Dipsy Kapoor, Craig A. Knoblock, Kristina Lerman, Steven Minton

We have integrated three task learning technologies within a single desktop application to assist users in creating information integration applications. These technologies include a tool to create agents for programmatic access to online information sources, a tool to semantically model these sources by aligning their input and output parameters to a common ontology, and a tool that enables the user to create complex integration plans using text instructions. We have integrated these tools within the CALO Desktop Assistant. Our system enabled even relatively novice users, who are not familiar with information integration systems, to construct integration plans for a variety of problems in the office and travel domains.
