Sorry, I don’t speak SPARQL – A Survey

Many Semantic Web applications are currently based on SPARQL. In particular, an increasing number of systems, such as question answering systems, keyword search or search by example internally construct SPARQL queries. However, lay users do not understand this language, so it is difficult to give the user feedback on what queries the system constructed. To address the gap between SPARQL and natural language, the AKSW and CITEC groups have devised an approach for transforming SPARQL queries to natural language.

You (yes, you!) can help us by judging the quality of the translations we present in this survey:

The survey can be done by both – SPARQL experts and lay users. For lay users, it takes 5 minutes to complete and 15 minutes for experts. In addition to the interesting (sometimes challenging) questions, there are also great prizes to win. 10 randomly selected participants will receive Amazon vouchers:

1st prize: 200 Euro
2nd prize: 100 Euro
3rd prize: 50 Euro
4th – 10th prize: 25 Euro

If you want to win a prize, you need to fill in your name at the end of the survey.

Enjoy the survey,
