WiSeNet: a Wikipedia-based Semantic network

WiSeNet is a semantic network developed by Andrea Moro and Roberto Navigli. We extract semantic relations from Wikipedia sentences and ontologize them by, first, creating sets of synonymous relational phrases, called relation synsets, second, assigning semantic classes to the arguments of these relation synsets and, third, disambiguating the initial relation instances with relation synsets.
