To All,

I am pleased to announce that we have released KBpedia 
<http://kbpedia.org/> v 2.50 with e-commerce and logistics capabilities, 
as well as significant other refinements. This upgrade comes from adding 
the entire top structure and the most common products and services of 
the United Nations Standard Products and Services Code. UNSPSC 
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UNSPSC> is a comprehensive, multi-lingual 
taxonomy for products and services, organized into four levels, with 
third-party crosswalks to economic and demographic data sources. It is a 
leading standard for many industrial and economic applications. UNSPSC 
is KBpedia's seventh core knowledge base, joining the public knowledge 
bases of Wikipedia <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia>, Wikidata 
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikidata>, GeoNames 
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeoNames>, DBpedia 
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DBpedia>, schema.org 
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schema.org>, and OpenCyc 
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyc> already integrated into the system.

KBpedia is a knowledge graph that provides a coherent scaffolding to 
achieve its twin goals of data interoperability and knowledge-based 
artificial intelligence (KBAI 
<http://www.mkbergman.com/category/kbai/>). KBpedia now contains more 
than 58,000 reference concepts and nearly 200,000 unique mappings to its 
knowledge bases, enabling links to more than 40 million entities. It is 
written in the standard OWL 2 
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Ontology_Language> semantic language 
from the W3C <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Wide_Web_Consortium>.

KBpedia consists of 73 mostly disjoint typologies organized under an 
upper KBpedia Knowledge Ontology (KKO), which is designed according to 
the universal categories and knowledge representation insights of the 
great American 19th century scientist, logician, and polymath, Charles 
Sanders Peirce <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Sanders_Peirce>. 
KBpedia, KKO, and all of its mappings and files are open source under 
the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) 
<https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/> license.

For more details, see the release announcement 
<http://kbpedia.org/resources/news/kbpedia-adds-ecommerce/> or go to 
Github <https://github.com/Cognonto/kbpedia/blob/master/versions/2.50/> 
to download <http://kbpedia.org/resources/downloads/> the distro.

Thanks, Mike
