Features & Benefits

The open source KBpedia provides these features:

  • A consistent, coherent combination of seven (7) large and leading public knowledge bases into the computable KBpedia knowledge structure [1]
  • Mappings to a further 20 "extended" knowledge bases [2]
  • A structured organization of the contributing knowledge sources that enables separate treatment of concepts, entities, events, attributes, and relations and their associated types [3]
  • Powerful and flexible manipulation and filtering capabilities
  • Use of open and accepted languages and standards [4]
  • A modular and expandable architecture
  • A completely Web-based knowledge structure, which may be deployed locally or in the cloud.

In turn, these features provide these benefits:

  • Integration and incorporation of all data assets — unstructured text, semi-structured and markup data, and structured datasets and databases
  • A reference structure for inter-relating and integrating your own domain content
  • Inherent multi-linguality, supported by the 200+ languages of the source knowledge bases
  • Precise semantic representation for all items, enabling better selections and matches
  • The ability to make selections via inference and other logical operations
  • The potential to recognize and train up to 52,000 fine-grained entity types
  • A knowledge graph suitable to network analytics such as influence, centrality, shortest paths, assortative mixing, and betweenness
  • Faster, cheaper creation of positive and negative machine learning training sets
  • Faster, cheaper configuration and testing of machine learners.
