Abstract: The web contains a huge amount of structured information provided by a large number of web sites. Since the current search engines are not able to fully recognize this kind of data, this abundance of information is an enormous opportunity to create new applications and services. To exploit the structured web data, several challenging issues must be addressed, spanning from the web pages gathering, the data extraction and integration, and the characterization of conflicting data. Three design criteria are critical for techniques that aim at working at the web scale: Scalability (in terms of computational complexity), unsupervised approach (as human intervention can not be involved at the web scale), and domain–independence (to avoid custom solutions). The thesis of this dissertation is that the redundancy of information provided by the web sources can be leveraged to create a system that locates the pages of interest, extracts and integrates the information, and handles the data inconsistency that the redundancy naturally implies.
