We are proud to announce the release of BabelNet 3.0, a project funded

by the European Research Council (ERC) and headed by prof. Roberto Navigli

at the Sapienza University of Rome.

BabelNet is a very large multilingual encyclopedic dictionary

and semantic network created by means of the seamless integration

of the largest multilingual Web encyclopedia - i.e., Wikipedia - with the

most popular computational lexicon of English - i.e., WordNet, and other

lexical resources such as Wiktionary, OmegaWiki, Wikidata, and the Open
Multilingual WordNet. The integration is performed via an automatic linking
algorithm and by filling in lexical gaps with the aid of Machine
Translation. The result is an encyclopedic dictionary that provides Babel
synsets, i.e., concepts and named entities lexicalized in many languages
and connected with large amounts of semantic relations.

Version 3.0 comes with the following features:

* Brand-new user interface <http://babelnet.org>

* New RESTful API available via the BabelNet 3.0 beta program <
http://babelnet.org/download> (open until January 31st, 2015, of particular
interest to institutions and companies)

* 271 languages now covered!

* Improved accuracy of our seamless integration of WordNet, Open
Multilingual WordNet, Wikipedia, OmegaWiki, Wikidata, Wiktionary

* 13.7M Babel synsets

* 117M Babel senses

* 40.3M textual definitions

* 354M semantic relations

* Fully taxonomized thanks to the seamless integration of our Wikipedia
Bitaxonomy <http://wibitaxonomy.org/>

* 10M synset-associated images

* Around 2 billion RDF triples available via a public SPARQL endpoint (<
http://babelnet.org/rdf>, available *before Christmas*)
