DBpedia is a project about extraction and publication of data from Wikipedia. Although part of this content has been integrated to Wikidata, DBpedia extraction provides data that was not migrated to Wikidata, like Category hierarchical relations, or data generated by DBpedia community like interlinking with Linked Data resources. Links between Wikidata and DBpedia are also being extracted, enabling their data to be exploited complementary.
We present first DBpedia extraction process, and explain what data can be extracted from wikipedia and other wikimedia projects. Then we will present applications built over the data extracted that could be useful for Wikimedia community.
- Detailed proposal
Semanticpedia is a collaboration between INRIA, the French Ministry of Culture and Wikimedia France to extract data from Wikimedia French content. First project lead by Semanticpedia is DBpedia in French, data extraction from Wikipedia fr and part of DBpedia internationalization committee.
A part of the data currently extracted from Wikipedia has been integrated to Wikidata or will be in short term. However, not all the data that can be extracted are planned to be migrated to Wikidata. For instance the Category hierarchy relations, available in DBpedia, are not migrated. In addition, an interlinking effort from the DBpedia community provides connections with many resources of the Linked Data. Connexions between Wikidata and DBpedia are also being extracted now, thus enabling their data to be exploited complementary.
We will explain how the extraction process works, and what data can be extracted from wikipedia and other wikimedia projects. Then we will present some applications built over the data extracted that could be useful for Wikimedia community. For instance: cycle detection in category hierarchy, analysis of image repartition according to the Categories, etc.
