Impact of the Idea behind DBpedia
Extract structured data from Wikipedia.
Impact of the Pattern behind DBpedia
● Effort Distribution
○ Content creation: Wikipedia editors community
○ Extraction and cleansing: DBpedia community
○ Users “only” need to employ the knowledge for their specific tasks
● Pattern proved successful for
○ DBpedia (public knowledge graph)
○ Google Knowledge Graph, Bing Knowledge Graph (private knowledge graphs)
○ Semantic Web as a whole?
Shield users from data extraction and
cleansing effort.
Future: A Knowledge Graph for Research?
● Can we learn from DBpedia for our own work?
● Scholarly communication has not changed much in the last 500 years (now
PDFs instead of real papers)
● As we now use knowledge graphs to represent encyclopaedic knowledge
we might want to try them for representing and exchanging scientific
knowledge
● Challenges are ambiguity, evolution, discourse
● A number of approaches in this direction exist, but more work needs to be
done
Special Thanks
