Definition: 

Data correction performed by the computer without human intervention. It makes particular use of redundancy. Exclusion (elimination) of incorrect records or substitution of a record or its part by data from other records or the correction base. Auto-correction is generally done according to rules that assure the final (corrected) record fails no edits.
