Stanbol is designed to provide semantic services for existing content management systems. It offers the following features:

  • Content enhancement services that add semantic information to ‘non-semantic' pieces of content.
  • Reasoning services that produce additional semantic information about the content based on the data retrieved via content enhancement.
  • Knowledge model services that are used to define and manipulate the data models (e.g., ontologies) for storing the semantic information.
  • Persistence services that store (or cache) semantic data (enhanced content, entities, facts) and make it searchable.

Details on technical infrastructure ca nbe found in this presentation or on the main site at https://stanbol.apache.org/.

Two prototypes using the Europeana data have been tested in the past using the Europeana data.

  • Enhancement Chains which allows the linking of named entities with a given linked dataset.

  • Hallo - The Hallo tool has been developed by the team responsible for VIE (Vienna IKS Editables – a Java library). This demo uses text written in a HTML5 Rich Text Editor, where users can accept suggested annotations, triggering the insertion of pictures below the editable region. A demo of the Hallo tool is avaialble at http://hallojs.org/
