DBpedia allows youtoask sophisticated queries against Wikipedia andtolink other datasets onthe WebtoWikipedia data.Project Overview Wikipedia isthe byfar largest publicly available encyclopedia onthe Web. Wikipedia editions areavailable inover 250 languages with theEnglish oneaccounting formore than 1.95 million articles. Wikipedia hasthe problem that itssearch capabilities arelimited tofull-text search, which only allows very limited access tothis valuable knowledge-base. Semantic Web technologies enable expressive queries against structured information onthe Weband tointerlink data between different Webdata sources. TheSemantic Webhas theproblem that there isnot much RDFdata online yetand that up-to-date terms andontologies aremissing formany application domains. TheDBpedia project approaches both problems byextracting structured information from Wikipedia andbymaking this information available onthe Semantic Web. TheDBpedia dataset currently provides information about more than 1.95 million “things”, including atleast 80,000 persons, 70,000 places, 35,000 music albums, 12,000 films. Altogether, theDBpedia dataset consists of103 million pieces ofinformation (RDF triples).

DBpedia has been described by Tim Berners-Lee as one of the more famous parts of the decentralized Linked Data effort.
