  author={Marco Fossati and Emilio Dorigatti and Claudio Giuliano},
  journal={Semantic Web},
The Web has evolved into a huge mine of knowledge carved in different forms, the predominant one still being the free-text document. This motivates the need for Intelligent Web-reading Agents: hypothetically, they would skim through disparate Web sources corpora and generate meaningful structured assertions to fuel Knowledge Bases (KBs). Ultimately, comprehensive KBs, like WIKIDATA and DBPEDIA, play a fundamental role to cope with the issue of information overload. On account of such vision… 
Named Entity Extraction for Knowledge Graphs: A Literature Overview
The paper presents an overview of recent advances in this area, covering: Named Entity Recognition (NER), Named Entity Disambiguation (NED), and Named Entity Linking (NEL), and observes that NEL has recently moved from being stepwise and isolated into an integrated process along two dimensions.
FarsBase: The Persian knowledge graph
FarsBase is the first Persian multi-source knowledge graph, which is specifically designed for semantic search engines to support Persian knowledge and adopts a low-cost mechanism for verifying candidate knowledge by human experts.
Knowledge Extraction From Texts Based on Wikidata
A system consisting of entity detection and linking, coreference resolution, and relation extraction based on the Wikidata schema is presented, which can be further used for constructing an entreprise-specific knowledge base.
NLP and the Representation of Data on the Semantic Web
This chapter aims to discuss the main concepts involved in the representation of the information through the Semantic Web and the NLP fields.
Detecting semantic relations in texts and their integration with external data resources
The Czech Legal Text Treebank is created with several layers of linguistic annotation, which is used to train and test each stage of the proposed system, and new Semantic Web resources and tools are available for automatic processing of texts.
Mining information from sentences through Semantic Web data and Information Extraction tasks
The strategy involves Information Extraction tasks and a hybrid semantic similarity measure to get entities and relations that are later associated with individuals and properties from a Knowledge Base to create RDF triples (Subject–Predicate–Object structures).
Lifting News into a Journalistic Knowledge Platform
A general NLP lifting architecture for automatically lifting and processing news reports in real-time based on the recent development of the NLP methods is introduced.
Synthesizing N-ary Relations from Web Tables
This paper presents a method to synthesize n-ary relations from web tables for the use case of knowledge base extension, which applies the method to a corpus of 5 million web tables originating from 80 thousand different web sites and finds that 38% of the synthesized relations are non-binary.
Profiling the semantics of n-ary web table data
This papers analyses a corpus of 5 million web tables originating from 80 thousand different web sites with respect to how many web table attributes are non-binary, what composite keys are required to correctly interpret the semantics of the non- binary attributes, and whether the values of these keys are found in the table itself or need to be extracted from the page surrounding the table.


Leveraging Linguistic Structure For Open Domain Information Extraction
This work replaces this large pattern set with a few patterns for canonically structured sentences, and shifts the focus to a classifier which learns to extract self-contained clauses from longer sentences to determine the maximally specific arguments for each candidate triple.
Open Language Learning for Information Extraction
Open Information Extraction (IE) systems extract relational tuples from text, without requiring a pre-specified vocabulary, by identifying relation phrases and associated arguments in arbitrary
FrameBase: Representing N-Ary Relations Using Semantic Frames
FrameBase is presented, a wide-coverage knowledge-base schema that uses linguistic frames to seamlessly represent and query n-ary relations from other knowledge bases, at different levels of granularity connected by logical entailment.
FrameBase: Enabling integration of heterogeneous knowledge
Large-scale knowledge graphs such as those in the Linked Data cloud are typically represented as subjectpredicate-object triples. However, many facts about the world involve more than two entities.
Open Information Extraction Using Wikipedia
WOE is presented, an open IE system which improves dramatically on TextRunner's precision and recall and is a novel form of self-supervised learning for open extractors -- using heuristic matches between Wikipedia infobox attribute values and corresponding sentences to construct training data.
Identifying Relations for Open Information Extraction
Two simple syntactic and lexical constraints on binary relations expressed by verbs are introduced in the ReVerb Open IE system, which more than doubles the area under the precision-recall curve relative to previous extractors such as TextRunner and woepos.
Enriching Structured Knowledge with Open Information
This work presents a complete, ontology independent, generalized workflow which is evaluated on facts extracted by Nell and Reverb and indicates that the clustering of relational phrases pays of in terms of an improved instance and property mapping.
Integrating Heterogeneous Knowledge with FrameBase
FrameBase is presented, a wide-coverage knowledge-base schema that uses linguistic frames to represent and query n-ary relations from other knowledge bases, providing also different levels of granularity connected by logical entailment, providing for flexible and expressive seamless semantic integration from heterogeneous sources.
Semantic Parsing via Paraphrasing
This paper presents two simple paraphrase models, an association model and a vector space model, and trains them jointly from question-answer pairs, improving state-of-the-art accuracies on two recently released question-answering datasets.
From hyperlinks to Semantic Web properties using Open Knowledge Extraction
This work proposes a novel paradigm, named Open Knowledge Extraction, and its implementation that performs unsuper- vised, open domain, and abstractive knowledge extraction from text for producing machine readable information.
