Merging distributed sOurces for enhanceD quERy aNswering

MODERN is a project proposal that crossovers both symbolic and numerical AI and aims to deliver robust merging methods for query-answering that are able to aggregate several and open web sources in order to get back trustful answers. In particular, the project aims to propose methods for merging that benefit from recent work on commonsense reasoning and vector space representations of entitles as tools to deal with inaccuracies encountered when aggregating information sources.
