Abstract: With increasing number of social networks, smartphones and applications there is a need of creating a framework for information integration across social networks and applications and create an unified record for each person/entity. The problem in information integration is that of entity disambiguation. It determines whether two objects in an ontology refer to same real world object. This will enable system to learn a large amount of contextual information. I will be extending Krishna's work and will try to build a system which integrates information across Facebook, Twitter, Google contacts, phone contacts, calender, etc and create a super profile of a person. We will also try to do some feature engineering to improve classification accuracy.
