A hitchhiker’s guide to Ontology
In this talk, I will give an overview of our recent work in the area of knowledge bases. I will first talk about our main project, the YAGO knowledge base. In this context, I will present our work on the automatic correction of regular expressions. I will then talk about knowledge mining. This includes rule mining (finding semantic correlations in the knowledge base), as well as predicting the completeness of the data in a knowledge base. I will then present our work on automatically correcting errors in Wikidata, and on efficient querying of knowledge bases. Finally, I will talk about applications of knowledge bases in the domain of computational creativity and the digital humanities.
