14:00, Room G008 (Parc Club)
This talk will present YAGO. YAGO is a large ontology, which currently contains more than 2 million entities and close to 20 million facts about them. The talk will explain how the ontology was constructed automatically from Wikipedia and WordNet. The talk will also introduce the SOFIE project. SOFIE uses logical reasoning to extract new information for YAGO from Web sources and reconciles it with the existing data.
