Computing Science Seminar. Wang on "Zhishi.me: Building up the Chinese Linked Open Data"

01 July 2015, 14:00 - 15:00

Speaker: Wang Haofen

Abstract:

Linked Open Data (LOD) has become one of the most important community efforts to publish high-quality interconnected semantic data. Such data has been widely used in many applications to provide intelligent services such as entity search and personalized recommendation. While DBpedia, one of the LOD core data sources, contains resources described in multilingual versions and semantic data in English is proliferating, there is very few work on publishing Chinese semantic data. In this talk, I will present Zhishi.me, the frst effort to publish large scale Chinese semantic data and link them together as a Chinese LOD (CLOD). More precisely, I will introduce details of instance matching, type inference as well as how to build a large scale Chinese schema.org, which is further integrated into zhishi.me. Finally, I will show you the future plan of developing zhishi.me.
