DBpedia Tutorial @ KG Conference (Online)

May 4, 2021
3:00 pm CEST

We are proud to announce that we will organize a tutorial at the Knowledge Graph Conference 2021 on May 4, 2021 at 3pm CEST. The tutorial targets existing and potential new users of DBpedia, developers that wish to learn how to replicate DBpedia infrastructure, service providers interested in exploiting the DBpedia KG, data providers interested in integrating data assets with the DBpedia KG, data scientists (e.g. linguists) focused on extracting relevant information (e.g. linguistic) from/based on the DBpedia KG.

The tutorial is also dedicated for people from the public and private sector who are interested in implementing knowledge graph technologies, and in particular, DBpedia. During the course of the tutorial the participants will gain knowledge about:

  • the complete DBpedia Knowledge Graph lifecycle, i.e. from extraction and modelling to publishing and maintenance of DBpedia,
  • how to find information, access, query and work with the DBpedia KG,
  • the DBpedia infrastructure – the Databus platform and services (Spotlight, archivo, etc),
  • how to replicate the DBpedia knowledge graph and infrastructure,
  • how to use DBpedia in third-party applications and
  • how to contribute and improve the DBpedia knowledge graph.

Altough the tutorial will be shaped in a way that no specific prerequisites will be required, the participants would benefit if they have some background knowledge in Semantic Web concepts and technologies (RDF, OWL, SPARQL), general overview of the Web Architecture (HTTP, URI, JSON, etc.) and basic programming skills (bash, Java, JavaScript).

The DBpedia Knowledge Graph Tech Tutorial will be held on May 4, 2021 at 3:00-6:00pm CEST.
