Attribute value matching (AVM) identifies equivalent values that refer to the same entities. Traditional approaches ignore the weights of values in itself. In this demonstration, we present AVM-LB, Attribute Value Matching with Limited Budget, that preferentially matches the hot equivalent values such that the maximal benefit to data consistency can be achieved by limited budget. By defining a rank function and greedily matching the hot equivalent values, the AVM-LB enables users to interactively explore the achieved benefit to data consistency.
