Meeting Description: The DBpedia community project extracts structured, multilingual knowledge from Wikipedia and makes it freely available using Semantic Web and Linked Data standards. The extracted knowledge, comprising more than 1.8 billion facts, is structured according to an ontology maintained by the community. The knowledge is obtained from different Wikipedia language editions, thus covering more than 100 languages, and mapped to the community ontology. The resulting data sets are linked to more than 30 other data sets in the Linked Open Data (LOD) cloud. The DBpedia project was started in 2006 and has meanwhile attracted large interest in research and practice. Being a central part of the LOD cloud, it serves as a connection hub for other data sets. For the research community, DBpedia provides a testbed serving real world data spanning many domains and languages. Due to the continuous growth of Wikipedia, DBpedia also provides an increasing added value for data acquisition, re-use and integration tasks within organisations. In this system report, we give an overview over the DBpedia community project, including its architecture, technical implementation, maintenance, internationalisation, usage statistics and showcase some popular DBpedia applications.
