Knowledge Graph Infrastructure

We use a variety of algorithms to OCR, structure and semantify the unstructured data and to create knowledge graphs.

The knowledge graphs:

The tools for entity linking, entity typing and data enriching:

  • bbw: tool for automatic semantic annotations of tabular data (entity linking, entity typing and relation extraction on Wikidata)
  • spaCyOpenTapioca: spaCy wrapper of OpenTapioca for named entity linking on Wikidata
  • OpenRefine: a powerful free, open source tool for working with messy data: cleaning it; transforming it from one format into another; and extending it with web services and external data
