Holistic Benchmarking of Big Linked Data

HOBBIT aims at abolishing the barriers in the adoption and deployment of Big Linked Data by European companies, by means of open benchmarking reports that allow them to assess the fitness of existing solutions for their purposes. These benchmarks are based on data that reflects reality and measures industry-relevant Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) with comparable results using standardized hardware.

Upcoming Evaluation Campaigns powered by HOBBIT technologies, almost.

In a former blog post, we presented the predecessor of the HOBBIT platform, the General Entity Annotator Benchmarking Framework (GERBIL) [1]. This framework has been adopted by two evaluation campaigns as described in this post. These campaigns focus on tasks such as entity recognition, entity typing and question answering. Open Knowledge Extraction Challenge The OKE […]

The roots of HOBBIT: GERBIL

The idea of creating a platform to host different benchmarking tools for the Big Linked Data lifecycle was born with the creation of the General Entity Annotator Benchmarking Framework [1](GERBIL). GERBIL is designed to facilitate the benchmarking of named entity recognition (NER), named entity disambiguation (NED) and other semantic tagging approaches. GERBIL’s objective is to […]

Big Linked Data Benchmarking Survey

We opened up a short survey to question the industry and other potential partners on how they are evaluating their software. The goal of this survey is to determine industry-relevant key performance indicators (KPI’s) for building benchmarks that measure these factors. With this survey, we aim to raise awareness about the HOBBIT project and lay a foundation for […]

Why Join the Hobbit Community?

Linked Data technologies are proving their efficiency in creating interoperable IT systems that integrate disparate data sources. However, it is still unclear which solutions scale up the needs of modern business applications. Benchmarks have been created to support decisions on choosing the best software solution. However, they commonly fail to reflect business requirements in terms […]
