About:

Chopin uses semantic graph technologies to organize enterprise data from different sources into an integrated web of knowledge, enabling easy information discovery, visualization and querying.

Chopin is a data fusion platform being developed by a team from the Department of Computer Science at University of Toronto. Specialists from the Databases Group and the Computer Systems & Networks Group have come together to build a system that integrates data silos without the need to migrate all the data to a centralized repository. In addition, Chopin enables domain experts to explore, visualize and analyze data without the help of data scientists or programmers. By using Chopin, the time and complexity to request, curate and provision enterprise data from multiple sources becomes minimal.
