Projects and Demos

Visit the Data Analytics site for more information about the team's work.  Some of our more recent projects and demos include:
  • NADEEF (which means ''clean'' in Arabic) is an extensible and generalized data cleaning system.  Released as open source, NADEEF allows users to implement their own data repairing algorithms to replace default NADEEF data repair implementation. 
  • The World Bank's Auto Geotagger is a prototype which automatically identifies locations in documents from the World Bank Projects Data API using the Stanford Name Entity Recognizer (NER) and Alchemy, geocodes them with the Google Geocoder, Yahoo! Placefinder , and Geonames and visualizes them on a map.
  • Data Tamer is a system that allows for scalable data curation and integration by deduplicating the resulting dataset composite.

QCRI provides a unique opportunity to be a part of building a high-impact research center in a geographical area that can have long-term effects in terms of transforming Qatar and the region as a whole. It’s this long-term vision and related investments from Qatari leadership that I find so exciting and believe will forever change the future of the people of the Middle East for the better.
