Vasilis Efthymiou, Ph.D.

University of Crete, Greece

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Information Systems Laboratory of FORTH-ICS, leading a project on responsible entity resolution, and a visiting instructor at the Computer Science Department of University of Crete, teaching advanced database topics, information systems, as well as knowledge representation and reasoning. Before joining FORTH, I was a postdoctoral researcher at IBM Research in Almaden Research Center, CA, USA, working on data management and AI. I received my PhD from the Computer Science Department of University of Crete for research on entity resolution in the Web of Data (book, survey, dissertation). After my 2016 research internship at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, NY, USA, on matching Web tables to Knowledge Graphs, we have joined forces with researchers from IBM Research, Oxford University and City University of London to co-organize the SemTab challenges: an effort to benchmark systems dealing with the tabular data to KG matching problem, so as to facilitate their comparison on the same basis and the reproducibility of the results.
