Freebase is a free database of the world's knowledge. It draws its
information from a variety of sources, of which Wikipedia is one of
the most important.
Next Tuesday we'll be having a user group meeting here in SF and one
of our presenters will be talking about how we mine Wikipedia for data
and extract semantic meaning from articles. There was a previous talk
on a related topic ("Mining Wikipedia") which I've posted at
and which might also be of interest.
) , the semantic search engine which
searches Wikipedia and Freebase, will also be sending one of their
techs to talk about how they do what they do.
