Short intro

The huge wealth of data available nowadays holds tremendous potential to improve our lives, whether it be by advancing scientific knowledge, improving patient care, or supporting more informed policymaking. However, obtaining relevant and reliable information from real-world data is difficult due both to the need to integrate data from heterogeneous sources and the ubiquity of data quality issues (e.g. missing or incorrect facts). Our aim is to develop intelligent, knowledge-based methods for handling imperfect data, thereby enabling confident and informed decision making.
