> Abstract: We kick-off StrepHit, a project funded by the Wikimedia
> Foundation through the Individual Engagement Grants program.
> StrepHit is a Natural Language Processing pipeline that understands human
> language, extracts facts from text and produces Wikidata statements with
> reference URLs.
> It will enhance the data quality of Wikidata by suggesting references to
> validate statements, and will help Wikidata become the gold-standard hub of
> the Open Data landscape.
> Speaker's bio: Marco Fossati is a researcher with a double background in
> Natural Languages and Information Technologies. He works at the Data and
> Knowledge Management (DKM) research unit at Fondazione Bruno Kessler,
> Trento, Italy. He is member of the DBpedia Association board of trustees,
> founder and representative of its Italian chapter. He has interdisciplinary
> skills both in linguistics and in programming. His research focuses on

> its full potential.
