The DBpedia Association was founded in 2014 to support DBpedia and the DBpedia Community. Since then we are making slow, but steady progress towards professionalizing DBpedia for its users and forming an effective network out of the loosely organised DBpedia community. The DBpedia Association is currently situated in Leipzig, Germany and affiliated with the non-profit organisation Institute for Applied Informatics (InfAI) e.V. If you are interested in details, please read the Charter of the DBpedia Association or check the flyer here. Homepage: https://wiki.dbpedia.org/dbpedia-association
DBpedia is a crowd-sourced community effort to extract structured content from the information created in various Wikimedia projects. This structured information resembles an open knowledge graph (OKG) which is available for everyone on the Web. A knowledge graph is a special kind of database which stores knowledge in a machine-readable form and provides a means for information to be collected, organized, shared, searched and utilized. Google uses a similar approach to create those knowledge cards during search. We hope that this work will make it easier for the huge amount of information in Wikimedia projects to be used in some new interesting ways.
