In this seminar, we will study state of the art methods and technology for mining meaning from Wikipedia. After a short introduction into the topic of text based information management, we will review different natural language problems in which Wikipedia has been used (e.g., semantic relatedness, word sense disambiguation, coreference resolution). In the second part of the seminar, we will study application-oriented approaches, e.g., Wikipedia-oriented information extraction and question answering, and Wikipedia-based construction of ontologies.
