SHELDON: Semantic Holistic FramEwork for LinkeD ONtology Data

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8982)


SHELDON is a framework that builds upon a machine reader for extracting RDF graphs from text so that the output is compliant to Semantic Web and Linked Data patterns. It extends the current human-readable web by using semantic best practices and technologies in a machine-processable form. Given a sentence in any language, it provides different semantic tasks as well as nice visualization tools which make use of the JavaScript infoVis Toolkit and a knowledge enrichment component on top of RelFinder. The system can be freely used at
