Extraction of lethal events from Wikipedia and a semantic repository

Norrby, Magnus and Nugues, Pierre LU (2015) workshop on Semantic resources and semantic annotation for Natural Language Processing and the Digital Humanities at NODALIDA 2015 In Linköping Electronic Conference ProceedingsNEALT Proceedings Series 11227. p.28-35
Abstract
This paper describes the extraction of information on lethal events from the Swedish version of Wikipedia. The information searched includes the persons’ cause of death, origin, and profession. We carried out the extraction using a processing pipeline of available tools for Swedish including a part-of-speech tagger, a dependency parser, and manually-written extraction rules. We also extracted structured semantic data from the Wikidata store that we combined with the information retrieved from Wikipedia. Eventually, we gathered a database of facts that covers both sources: Wikipedia and Wikidata.
