  • How can a computer accumulate a massive body of knowledge?
  • What will Web search engines look like in ten years?

To address the questions above, the KnowItAll project has been developing a variety of domain-independent systems that extract information from the Web in an autonomous, scalable manner.

Demo:  ReVerb extracted over 1,000,000,000 assertions from millions of Web pages.

The project has been sponsored in part by federal research grants from the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research, and gifts from Google.
