SZTAKI is now a member of DBpedia Association

SZTAKI (Institute for Computer Science and Control) has now become a member of DBpedia Association. The organization supports activities to develop DBpedia, a collaborative project that aims to prepare and constantly update knowledge graphs based on Wikipedia data.

DBPedia contains the name and description of the encyclopedia entries in different languages, adding specific data (eg. date of birth or the number of residents) and relations (eg. the capital, or the children of a given entity).

As a member, SZTAKI will establish the Hungarian DBpedia, which is technically supported by the Association. Through software development and research SZTAKI may also contribute to DBpedia development.
