Use of ontology for estraction of structured datas from wikis

Project short description

Wikipedia is the largest and most known example of wiki. There are a lot of information in this wiki, and a lot of users create and edit pages. But this free encyclopedia has a disadvantage: the datas are not structured and so it is not possible to do advanced researches. Moreover computers can't process those datas. The aim of this project is to create a Java application that can extract datas and put them in an ontology, in order to have structured datas. Using the ontology it is possible do advanced researches, and computers can process the datas. For example this application was used to organize datas of the characters of "The lord of the rings".
