This project named proposes the creation of a french version of the DBpedia base used in many applications in english, in particular for the publication of cultural collections. Unfortunately, DBpedia is focused on the english version of Wikipedia and ignores some of the french topics and their data. This projects aims at extracting a maximum of RDF data from the french version of Wikipedia and providing a stable and scalable end-point for them. This project is funded by the Ministry of Culture.


Kolflow is an ANR project (2011-2014), it proposes to extend collective intelligence with smart agents relying on automated reasoning. Smart agents can significantly reduce the overhead of communities in the process of continuously building knowledge. Consequently, continuous knowledge building is much more effcient. Kolflow aims at building a social semantic space where humans collaborate with smart agents in order to produce knowledge understandable by humans and machines.
