Fri Dec 08 03:15 PM -- 03:45 PM (PST) @

The Never Ending Language Learner (NELL) research project has produced a computer program that has been running continuously since January 2010, learning to build a large knowledge base by extracting structured beliefs (e.g., PersonFoundedCompany(Gates,Microsoft), BeverageServedWithBakedGood(tea,crumpets)) from unstructured text on the web. This talk will provide an update on new NELL research results, reflect on the lessons learned from this effort, and discuss specific challenges for future systems that attempt to build large knowledge bases automatically.
