The DBpedia community has recently experienced an immense increase in activity. We believe that the time has come to explore the connection between DBpedia & Natural Language Processing (NLP) in a yet unprecedented depth. The goal of this workshop can be summarized by this (pseudo-) formula:
NLP & DBpedia ≡ DBpedia4NLP ⊓ NLP4DBpedia
DBpedia has a long-standing tradition to provide useful data as well as a commitment to reliable Semantic Web technologies and living best practices. With the rise of WikiData, DBpedia is step-by-step relieved from the tedious extraction of data from Wikipedia’s infoboxes and can shift its focus on new challenges such as extracting information from the unstructured article text as well as becoming a testing ground for multilingual NLP methods.
