Dear all,

We want to adapt the DBpedia extraction framewok to work with a MapReduce
framework. [1]

We want to implement this idea through GSoC 14 and already got two
interested students [2] [3].
Unfortunately we are not experienced in this field and our existing
contacts could not join. Thus,  we are looking for someone to help us
mentor the technical aspects of this project.

About GSoC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GSoC)
The *Google Summer of Code* (*GSoC*) is an annual program, first held from
May to August 2005,[1]<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GSoC#cite_note-LinSOC-1> in
which Google awards stipends (of US$5,500, as of 2014) to all students who
successfully complete a requested free and open-source software coding
project during the summer.
See some additional info on our page [4]
