Companies, such as Google and Microsoft, are building web-scale linked knowledge bases for the purpose of indexing and searching the Web, but these efforts do not address the problem of building accurate, fine-grained, deep knowledge bases for specific application domains. We are developing an integration framework, called Karma, which supports the rapid, end-to-end construction of such linked knowledge bases. In this talk I will describe machine-learning techniques for mapping new data sources to a domain model and linking the data across sources. I will also present several applications of this technology, including building virtual museums and integrating data sources for peacebuilding.
