SIMsKultur Online which acts as information and promotion platform for cultural events in the DACH region (concerts, operas, theater, dance, …) has joined the IKS Early Adopters Programme to create a tool for easy publishing of press reports / news items related to the content featured on the SIMsKultur Online platform and the SIMsKultur print and iPad® magazine. The project aims at integrating the Apache Stanbol software components to assist creating of news items with facts and media.
With that new part of the website we’d like to explore how to use Linked Open Data and assist the user with an easy to use user interface to create semantically annotated (schema.org) content.
As we’re dealing with texts in German the Apache Stanbol Enhancer / OpenNLP currently needs some improvements so that there will be meaningful entity suggestions.
So far we have experienced that searching and retrieving data from the Apache Stanbol Entityhub is quite fast and we’re looking forward to finish our demo application soon so we can share further insights.
