DBpedia – Crowd-Sourced Community Effort To Extract Structured Information from Wikipedia

DBpedia – Crowd-Sourced Community Effort To Extract Structured Information from Wikipedia
http://wiki.dbpedia.org/

DBpedia is a crowd-sourced community effort to extract structured information from Wikipedia and make this information available on the Web. DBpedia allows you to ask sophisticated queries against Wikipedia, and to link the different data sets on the Web to Wikipedia data. We hope that this work will make it easier for the huge amount of information in Wikipedia to be used in some new interesting ways. Furthermore, it might inspire new mechanisms for navigating, linking, and improving the encyclopedia itself. The DBpedia project leverages this gigantic source of knowledge by extracting structured information from Wikipedia and by making this information accessible on the Web under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 License and the GNU Free Documentation License. The English version of the DBpedia knowledge base describes 4.58 million things, out of which 4.22 million are classified in a consistent ontology, including 1,445,000 persons, 735,000 places (including 478,000 populated places), 411,000 creative works (including 123,000 music albums, 87,000 films and 19,000 video games), 241,000 organizations (including 58,000 companies and 49,000 educational institutions), 251,000 species and 6,000 diseases. In addition, we provide localized versions of DBpedia in 125 languages. All these versions together describe 38.3 million things, out of which 23.8 million are localized descriptions of things that also exist in the English version of DBpedia. The full DBpedia data set features 38 million labels and abstracts in 125 different languages, 25.2 million links to images and 29.8 million links to external web pages; 80.9 million links to Wikipedia categories, and 41.2 million links to YAGO categories.

The Essential Landscape of Enterprise AI Companies

September 26, 2017

The Essential Landscape of Enterprise AI Companies
https://www.topbots.com/essential-landscape-overview-enterprise-artificial-intelligence/

Enterprise companies comprise a $3.4 trillion market worldwide of which an increasingly larger share is being allocated to artificial intelligence technologies. By our definition, “enterprise” technology companies create tools for workplace roles and functions that a large number of businesses use. For example, Salesforce is the primary enterprise software used by sales professionals in a company. Also known as a type of customer relationship management software, or CRM, it is the system of record for sales professionals to enter in their contacts, progress of leads, and for sales metrics to be tracked. Any company directly selling their products and services would benefit from a CRM. Plenty of enterprise companies use combinations of automated data science, machine learning, and modern deep learning approaches for tasks like data preparation, predictive analytics, and process automation. Many are well-established players with deep domain expertise and product functionality. Others are hot new startups applying artificial intelligence to new problems.

Clear Sky Chart

Clear Sky Chart
https://www.cleardarksky.com/csk

For North American stargazing fans, the Clear Sky Chart offers a helpful series of charts that provide up-to-date forecasts of over 1,400 observatories in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Bahamas. These charts are based on data released by the Canadian Meteorological Center (CMC) and a model originally designed by CMC meteorologist Allan Rahill. The site is currently maintained by software guru and self-described “amateuar astronomer” Atilla Danko. To access these charts, visitors are invited to browse by region or search by position by entering latitude/ longitude information. Each chart includes information about cloud cover, transparency, wind, and humidity. The chart is color-coded to reveal the time of day best for viewing the sky at each observatory. In addition, when visitors explore these observatories by region, they can also view information about light pollution at each observatory. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™.

http://cop.hlcommission.org

Established in 1895, the Higher Learning Commission accredits college and university institutions in nineteen states. The Commission hosts an annual conference that invites participating institutions to speak on the accreditation process, as well as best practices for institutional administration, curriculum, and pedagogy. A collection of papers is published from each annual conference – the link above takes visitors to an organized collection of papers from 2016, which can be browsed by category. Individual paper topics include: developing meaningful assessments with limited resources, using social media to engage institutional stakeholders, and developing a “graduate experience” in two-year master’s programs. These papers are authored by professionals at public universities, private four-year colleges, and two-year colleges. Additionally, visitors can explore archived collections of papers dating back to 2013 in the Archives tab. This will be added to Education and Academic Resources Subject Tracer™.

The European Association of Distance Teaching Universities (EADTU) is Europe’s leading institutional association in online, open and flexible higher education, and is at the heart of the modernisation agenda of European universities.
