Subject: KIT releases 14 billion triples to the Linked Open Data cloud

> We are happy to announce that the Institute AIFB at the KIT is releasing 
> the biggest dataset until now to the Linked Open Data cloud. The Linked 
> Open Numbers project offers billions of facts about natural numbers, all 
> readily available as Linked Data.
> Our accompanying peer-reviewed paper [1] gives further details on the

> directly link to the best-known linked open data browsers from the page.

> Or point your linked open data browser directly at:
> <http://km.aifb.kit.edu/projects/numbers/n1>
> We are happy to have increased the amount of triples on the Web by more 
> than 14 billion triples, roughly 87.5% of the size of linked data web 
> before this release (see paper for details). We hope that the data set 
> will find its serendipitous use.
> The data set and the publication mechanism was checked pedantically, and

> About the AIFB
> The Institute AIFB (Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods) at 
> KIT is one of the world-leading institutions in Semantic Web technology. 
> Approximately 20 researchers of the knowledge management research group 
> are establishing theoretical results and scalable implementations for the 
> field, closely collaborating with the sister institute KSRI (Karlsruhe 
> Service Research Institute), the start-up company ontoprise GmbH, and the 
> Knowledge Management group at the FZI Research Center for Information 
> Technologies. Particular emphasis is given to areas such as logical 
> foundations, Semantic Web mining, ontology creation engineering and 
> management, RDF data management, semantic web search, and the
