Many in the Semantic Web community (especially linked data people) might
find the TAC 2010 Knowledge Base Population Track of interest.

   "The Knowledge Base Population (KBP) Track at TAC 2010 will explore
   extraction of information about entities with reference to an external
   knowledge source. Using basic schema for persons, organizations, and
   locations, nodes in an ontology must be created and populated using
   unstructured information found in text. A collection of Wikipedia
   Infoboxes will serve as a rudimentary initial knowledge representation."

See http://nlp.cs.qc.cuny.edu/kbp/2010/ for details.
