the Smart Data Analytics group is happy to announce AskNow 0.1 – the initial release of Question Answering Components and Tools over RDF Knowledge Graphs.
The following components with corresponding features are currently supported by AskNow:
- EARL 0.1 EARL performs entity linking and relation linking as a joint task. It uses machine learning in order to exploit the Connection Density between nodes in the knowledge graph. It relies on three base features and re-ranking steps in order to predict entities and relations.

- SQG 0.1: This is a SPARQL Query Generator with modular architecture. SQG enables easy integration with other components for the construction of a fully functional QA pipeline. Currently entity relation, compound, count, and boolean questions are supported.

- AskNow UI 0.1: The UI interface works as a platform for users to pose their questions to the AskNow QA system. The UI displays the answers based on whether the answer is an entity or a list of entities, boolean or literal. For entities it shows the abstracts from DBpedia.
- SemanticParsingQA 0.1: The Semantic Parsing-based Question Answering system is built on the integration of EARL, SQG and AskNowUI.
We want to thank everyone who helped to create this release, in particular the projects HOBBIT, SOLIDE, WDAqua, BigDataEurope.
