Awesome!

Once its available we can integrate into our URIBurner service which 
already hooks into the likes of DBpedia Spolight, OpenCalais, 
AlchemyAPI, Zemanta, Yahoo!, Extractiv etc..

Note, although we publish URIBurner as a public service, you can easily 
host your own instance by simply installing the Linked Data middleware 
component of Virtuoso.

middleware (aka. Sponger)

works.

>>> FRED is based on C&C [1] and Boxer [2], a NLP tool that transforms natural language text into a logical form compliant to Discourse Representation Theory. We process Boxer output and apply a set of heuristics and semantic transformations in order to obtain RDF designed for the Semantic Web. In this process, we emphasize the relation to linguistic frames, supporting FrameNet and VerbNet vocabularies, and to ontology design patterns.

FRED results are available as n-triples or graphs. A paper on FRED will be presented at next EKAW2012 [5].

>>> Tipalo - http://wit.istc.cnr.it/stlab-tools/tipalo
>>> A tool that automatically assigns types to Wikipedia entities in a LOD-intensive graph. Given a Wikipedia page URI, the tool returns a RDF graph composed of rdf:type, rdfs:subClassOf, owl:sameAs, and owl:equivalentTo statements providing typing information (organized into class taxonomies) about the entity referred by the Wikipedia page. Currently, entity types are derived from the text, and aligned to the DBpedia Ontology [6], WordNet 3.0 in RDF [7], DUL [8], and DolceZero [9]. The tool relies on FRED (including NER and WSD), hence it has unlimited domain coverage (i.e., it is independent from the completeness of specific ontologies). Results are available as RDF, HTML (with LODE [10]), and graphs. A paper describing Tipalo is currently under review.
