Hello Community! The ESWC 2017 just ended and we give a short report of the course at the conference, especially regarding the AKSW-Group.
Our members Dr. Muhammad Saleem, Dr. Mohamed Ahmed Sherif, Claus Stadler, Michael Röder, Prof. Dr. Jens Lehmann and Edgard Marx participated at the conference. They held a number of presentations, workshops and tutorials:
- Presented the research paper “All That Glitters is not Gold – Rule-Based Curation of Reference Datasets for Named Entity Recognition and Entity Linking”.
- During the Challenge session, he presented the Mighty Storage Challenge (MOCHA) and this years Open Knowledge Extraction (OKE) challenge.
- At the Demo and Poster session he was happy to present the Demo of the EAGLET tool to interested participants. The tool can be used for semi-automatic checks of named entity recognition and entity linking gold standards.https://svn.aksw.org/papers/2017/ESWC_EAGELT_DEMO/public.pdf
