    • Learning content patterns from linked data 

      Muñoz, Emir (CEUR-WS.org, 2014)
      Linked Data (LD) datasets (e.g., DBpedia, Freebase) are used in many knowledge extraction tasks due to the high variety of domains they cover. Unfortunately, many of these datasets do not provide a description for their ...
