Using YAGO for the Humanities

Abstract : In this paper, we study how data from the Semantic Web can be used for case studies in the Humanities. We conduct a proof of concept, using the YAGO knowledge base to study life expectancy, birth rates, and the age at childbirth over time. We also discuss the information extraction methods that we used to make YAGO sufficiently complete for these analyses to work.
