OKE Open Challenge at a glance:

The aim of this challenge is to test the performance of knowledge extraction systems in aspects that are relevant for the Semantic Web. These include precision, recall and runtime. The challenge will test the systems against data derived from several datasets and will comprise the following tasks:

* Task 1 Focused Named Entity Identification and Linking
* Task 2 Broader Named Entity Identification and Linking
* Task 3 Focused Musical Named Entity Recognition and Linking

We herewith invite system developers to participate in the aforementioned tasks. To ensure that the system results are comparable, we will provide the HOBBIT benchmarking platform for the generation of the final results to be included into the system publications. A specification of the hardware on which the benchmarks will be ran will be released in due course.

Small test data and training datasets for all three OKE tasks:

Task 1:
Task 2:
Τask 3:
