YAGO is another great semantic knowledge base that
would be nice to support in Stanbol. In addition to plain Entity
Linking YAGO could also be used for more advanced things like
- using its much cleaner categories (compared to dbpedia) and the
"thematic domains" to categorize Documents. This could be done by
training a classifier by using textual descriptions of Entities
assigned to those categories. Maybe also a categorization based on
linked Entities could work.
- As YAGO assigns Entities with spatial and temporal regions it should
be possible to detect the mentions of Events in documents
AIDA is a framework for entity detection and disambiguation using YAGO as Knowledge Base. Besides an indexing tool for YAGO in Stanbol, AIDA could be integrated in some way as Entity Linking and also Entity Disambiguation engine, in a similar way like DBPedia Spotlight is integrated right now.
