Knowledge Bases

A knowledge base (KB) is a structured, computer-processable description of the world. A KB can be thought of as a graph, in which the nodes are entities and the edges are relations. Here is an example:
An ontology is a graph
KBs serve all kinds of purposes, such as natural language understanding, intelligent assistance, or machine translation. Our research is guided by specific real-world problems on KBs. I work together with my colleagues and students in the DBWeb team of Télécom ParisTech and the Max Planck Institute. We aim to formalize problems, to design principled models for their solution, and to develop real systems that produce that solution.
