Freebase is the open core of Google’s Knowledge Graph.
Freebase is a free and open knowledge graph with millions of entities (people, places, and things).
1: Introducing the Knowledge Graph
Get an under the hood look at the next frontier in Search, from the team at Google behind the technology. The Knowledge Graph is a huge collection of the people, places and things in the world and how they’re connected to one another. With this technology, Google can get you the best possible answers and help jump start your discovery.
2: Build a Small Knowledge Graph
Creating and Processing Linked Data
In this video, Jarek Wilkiewicz introduces you to the reference architecture for support of Schema.org Actions (//goo.gl/vw8rOJ) in the context of a specific use case (a music store). The video then then focuses on exposing entities using Schema.org markup with JSON-LD.
Managing Graph Data With Cayley
This video introduces data loading and graph processing using Cayley, an open source graph database written in Go (https://github.com/google/cayley). Together, the first and second videos cover ETL for linked data.
Activating Graph Data With Actions
In this video, Jarek Wilkiewicz builds on the previous two episodes to show you how to activate a small Knowledge Graph with Schema.org Actions (//goo.gl/vw8rOJ).
Getting your events into the Knowledge Graph
What festivals are happening this summer near me? Where can I catch a jazz concert, see a comedy show, find a performance of MacBeth, or participate in a 5K race? Millions of users ask Google questions like these about upcoming events every day — but to answer well, Google needs *structured data* directly from the most authoritative websites for each event. In this talk, we’ll describe how event organizers, performers, venues, ticketers, and website hosts can participate in Google’s new event search features. We’ll cover: the new JSON-LD markup format; new schema.org properties for specifying event information in detail; how events are linked to the Knowledge Graph; and what it takes to show your events in Search, Google Now, Maps, and more.
3: The Freebase APIs: Tapping into Google’s Knowledge Graph
The Freebase APIs help developers enhance their applications so they better understand the people, places and things users care about.
We’ll dig into code samples and show how to enhance your application with Knowledge Graph data.
4: Semantic Web and schema.org
Dan Brickley presents schema.org, a set of extensible schemas that enables webmasters to embed structured data on their web pages for use by search engines.
