280 Birds with One Stone: Inducing Multilingual Taxonomies from Wikipedia using Character-level Classification [article]

Amit Gupta and Rémi Lebret and Hamza Harkous and Karl Aberer
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We propose a simple, yet effective, approach towards inducing multilingual taxonomies from Wikipedia.  ...  Given an English taxonomy, our approach leverages the interlanguage links of Wikipedia followed by character-level classifiers to induce high-precision, high-coverage taxonomies in other languages.  ...  We now describe our approach for inducing multilingual taxonomies from the WCN.  ...

2010 Proceedings of the 19th ACM international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '10  
This results in MENTA (Multilingual Entity Taxonomy), a resource that describes 5.4 million entities and is presumably the largest multilingual lexical knowledge base currently available.  ...  So far, however, the multilingual nature of Wikipedia has largely been neglected.  ...  By aggregating from multiple editions of Wikipedia, we are able to construct MENTA -Multilingual Entity Taxonomy -a large-scale taxonomic knowledge base that covers a significantly greater range of entities  ...
