Our aim is to develop a methodology and software for automating the conversion of tabular data from unstructured to a structured form. We create possibilities for extracting and transforming data from arbitrary tables presented in text documents and spreadsheets, for both loading them into relational databases and storing as linked data.
We work in the Department of Information Technology and Systems, Matrosov Institute for System Dynamics and Control Theory, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (http://idstu.irk.ru/en). We were supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (Grants No. 12-07-31051, 15-37-20042) and the Council for grants of the President of the Russian Federation (Scholarship No. SP-3387.2013.5). Our current study is supported by the Russian Science Foundation (Grant No. 18-71-10001).
