Organizations are collecting increasingly large amounts of data for data driven decision making. These data are often dumped into a centralized repository, e.g., a data lake, consisting of thousands of structured and unstructured datasets. Perversely, such mixture of datasets makes the problem of discovering elements (e.g., tables or documents) that are relevant to a user's query or an analytical task very challenging. Despite the recent efforts in data discovery, the problem remains widely open especially in the two fronts of (1) discovering relationships and relatedness across structured and unstructured datasets where existing techniques suffer from either scalability, being customized for a specific problem type (e.g., entity matching or data integration), or demolishing the structural properties on its way, and (2) developing a holistic system for integrating various similarity measurements and sketches in an effective way to boost the discovery accuracy. In this paper, we propose a new data discovery system, named CMDL, for addressing these two limitations. CMDL supports the data discovery process over both structured and unstructured data while retaining the structural properties of tables.
