Freebase: a collaboratively created graph database for structuring human knowledge
Freebase is a practical, scalable tuple database used to structure general human knowledge. The data in Freebase is collaboratively created, structured, and maintained. Freebase currently contains more than 125,000,000 tuples, more than 4000 types, and more than 7000 properties. Public read/write access to Freebase is allowed through an HTTPbased graph-query API using the Metaweb Query Language (MQL) as a data query and manipulation language. MQL provides an easy-to-use object-oriented interface to the tuple data in Freebase and is designed to facilitate the creation of collaborative, Web-based data-oriented applications. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.3.4 Systems and Software, Information Networks; E.1 Data Structures, Graphs and networks. General Terms Design, Human Factors, Languages
