Shortipedia wins 3rd prize at Semantic Web Challenge 2010!
Denny Vrandecic from AIFB together with his co-authors from the University of Southern California and former AIFB-colleague Markus Krötzsch, now Oxford University, win the 3rd prize at the Semantic Web Challenge 2010 for the "Shortipedia" project.
Shortipedia is a Web-based knowledge repository, pulling together a growing number of sources in order to provide a comprehensive, diversified view on entities of interest. Contributors to Shortipedia can easily add claims to the knowledge base, provide sources for their claims, and find links to knowledge already available on the Semantic Web.
