LIMES Version 0.6 RC4

October 6, 2014 - 11:49 pm by AxelNgonga - No comments »

It has been a while but that moment has arrived again. We are happy to announce a new release of the LIMES framework. This version implements novel geo-spatial measures (e.g., geographic mean) as well as string similarity measures (jaro, jaro-winkler, etc.). Moreover, we fixed some minor bugs (thanks for the bug reports). The final release (i.e., version 0.7) will soon be available so stay tuned!

Hello!

The  21st European Conference  on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI) will be held in the city of Prague, Czech  Republic from 18th to 22nd August 2014. Various excellent papers on artificial intellegence, logic, rule mining and many more topics will be presented.

AKSW member Ricardo Usbeck will present a poster of AGDISTIS – Agnostic Disambiguation of Named Entities using Linked Data. To the best of our knowledge AGDISTIS is able to outperform the state-of-the-art approaches in entity linking by up to 29% f-meassure. Come and visit him at ECAI 2014.

A demo of AGDISTIS is available here: http://agdistis.aksw.org/demo and the paper can be found here.
