This webinar in the course of the LOD2 webinar series will present DBpedia Spotlight
DBpedia Spotlight is a tool for automatically annotating mentions of DBpedia resources in text, providing a solution for linking unstructured information sources to the Linked Open Data cloud through DBpedia. DBpedia Spotlight recognizes that names of concepts or entities have been mentioned (e.g. “Michael Jordan”), and subsequently matches these names to unique identifiers (e.g. dbpedia:Michael_I._Jordan, the machine learning professor or dbpedia:Michael_Jordan, the basketball player). Besides common entity classes such as People, Locations and Organisations, DBpedia Spotlight also spots concepts from any of the 320 classes in the DBpedia Ontology.
DBpedia Spotlight is a tool employed in the Extraction stage of the LOD Life Cycle, performing Entity Recognition and Linking. Although the tool currently specializes in English language, the support for other languages is currently being tested, and demos for German, Dutch and others are available or underway. The tool can be used to enable faceted browsing, semantic search, among other applications. In this webinar we will describe what is DBpedia Spotlight, how it works and how can you benefit from it in your application. as a part within the LOD2 stack.
