DBpedia: a nucleus for a web of open data is a publication by Sören Auer, Christian Bizer, Georgi Kobilarov, Jens Lehmann, Richard Cyganiak, Zachary Ives.


[edit] Abstract

DBpedia is a community effort to extract structured information from Wikipedia and to make this information available on the Web. DBpedia allows you to ask sophisticated queries against datasets derived from Wikipedia and to link other datasets on the Web to Wikipedia data. We describe the extraction of the DBpedia datasets, and how the resulting information is published on the Web for human- and machine-consumption. We describe some emerging applications from the DBpedia community and show how website authors can facilitate DBpedia content within their sites. Finally, we present the current status of interlinking DBpedia with other open datasets on the Web and outline how DBpedia could serve as a nucleus for an emerging Web of open data.

[edit] Conclusion

"As future work, we will rst concentrate on improving the quality of the DBpedia dataset. We will further automate the data extraction process in order to increase the currency of the DBpedia dataset and synchronize it with changes in Wikipedia. In parallel, we will keep on exploring di erent types of user interfaces and use cases for the DBpedia datasets. Within the W3C Linking Open Data community project18, we will interlink the DBpedia dataset with further datasets as they get published as Linked Data on the Web. We also plan to exploit synergies between Wikipedia versions in different languages in order to further increase DBpedia coverage and provide quality assurance tools to the Wikipedia community. Such a tool could for instance notify a Wikipedia author about contradictions between the content of infoboxes contained in the di erent language versions of an article. Interlinking DBpedia with other knowledge bases such as Cyc (and their use as back-ground knowledge) could lead to further methods for (semi-) automatic consistency checks for Wikipedia content. DBpedia is a major source of open, royalty-free data on the Web. We hope that by interlinking DBpedia with further data sources, it could serve as a nucleus for the emerging Web of Data."
