DBpedia is a project that aims at extracting structured content from the information created as part of the Wikipedia project.

DBpedia is the backbone of WordLift’s Natural Language Processing module: the technology the plugin uses for analysing the content being written in WordPress. More over DBpedia is one of the freely available datasets that WordLift uses for dereferencing named entities (i.e. extracting information and facts after recognising a concept ).  

This structured information is then made available on the World Wide Web. DBpedia allows users to query relationships and properties associated with Wikipedia resources, including links to other related datasets. DBpedia has been described by Tim Berners-Lee as one of the more famous parts of the Linked Data project.
