Open Data Initiatives at HPI

This page gathers open-data-related activities at HPI, in particular in the area of linked open data and the semantic web. Contributing groups are

Research Projects

  • GovWILD
    GovWILD gathers and integrates government data from diverse government data sources, presents them in a Web interface and provides the data for download.
    Received the IBM Scalable Data Analytics Award
  • ProLOD
    Profiler for Linked Open Data (ProLOD) is a Web-based tool to perform data profiling tasks on datasets such as DBpedia. (NTII 2010 paper)
  • Yovisto
    Yovisto is a semantic video search engine specialized in academic content. Yovisto's search index is based on the combination of automated content based video analysis with user generated collaborative annotation (collaborative tagging, discussions, and comments) and Linked Open Data resources such as DBpedia. In difference to traditional video search engines, Yovisto enables pinpoint access within video data by providing fine-granular, time-dependent semantic metadata being published as Linked Open Data (SAMT 2010 paper / SemSearch 2010 paper).
  • Mediaglobe
    Cultural Memory provides an ever-increasing amount of information. Only a negligible small portion of this content is already accessable in the World Wide Web. Mediaglobe is a funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology within the context of the THESEUS research program 'New technologies for the internet of services' and aims to take media archives into the digital future providing availability and usability for the growing stock of audiovisual documents concerning German contemporary history. Mediaglobe offers state-of-the-art services for multimedia analysis and semantic multimedia search based on mappings to Linked Open Data resources on the web.
  • Stratosphere
    The DFG Research Unit (Forschergruppe) is developing a cloud-based data management system. One of the use cases is to query and cleanse linked open data.
  • iPopulator
    With iPopulator, we have introduced a system that automatically populates infoboxes of Wikipedia articles by extracting attribute values from the article's text.  In contrast to prior work, iPopulator detects and exploits the structure of attribute values to independently extract value parts. We have published a set of extracted facts from Wikipedia. (CIKM 2010 paper / technical report)
