DBpedia Events

Dataset category: 
Publication Year: 
2015

The English Wikipedia has more than a hundred edits per minute. A large part of the knowledge in Wikipedia is not static, but frequently updated, e.g., new movies or sports and political events. This makes Wikipedia an extremely rich, crowdsourced information hub for events. We have created a dataset based on DBpedia Live. Therefore, events are extracted not based on resource description them selves, but on the changes that happen to resource descriptions. The dataset gets daily updated and provides a list of headlined events linked to the actual update and resource snapshots.
