Title KELVIN: a tool for automated knowledge base construction
Venue Annual Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics
Session System Demonstration
Year 2013

We present KELVIN, an automated system for processing a large text corpus and distilling a knowledge base about persons, organizations, and locations. We have tested the KELVIN system on several corpora, including: (a) the TAC KBP 2012 Cold Start corpus which con- sists of public Web pages from the University of Pennsylvania, and (b) a subset of 26k news articles taken from English Gigaword 5th edi- tion. Our NAACL HLT 2013 demonstration per- mits a user to interact with a set of search- able HTML pages, which are automatically generated from the knowledge base. Each page contains information analogous to the semi-structured details about an entity that are present in Wikipedia Infoboxes, along with hyperlink citations to supporting text.
