The Entity Reconciliation Community Group has been launched:


Matching entities across data sources using different identifiers and
formats is a pervasive issue on the web.

expose, which eases the reconciliation of third-party data to their own
identifiers. OpenRefine's reconciliation API is used as a starting

experiences and lessons learnt from it, propose an improved protocol in
the view of promoting it as a standard, and build tooling around it.

A description of the existing protocol can be found here:
