Web Scale Knowledge Extraction

Monday, October 24th - 14:00 - 18:00 - Room: Haber

There has been a significant amount of interest recently in automatically creating large-scale knowledge bases from unstructured text. Compared to traditional, manually created representations, these knowledge bases have the advantage of scale and coverage. They often contain tens of millions of propositions, represented using a variety of encodings, from simple binary assertions to more complicated frame-like structures, and are extracted by parsing and analyzing large text corpora. This workshop is designed to gather researchers in the area of building and applying textually mined knowledge bases and to discuss key related issues and applications.
