YAGO website  

This is the pipeline to run YAGO 4. It allows to build YAGO 4 from a Wikidata dump.

If you only need to use the YAGO 4 data, see the "Additional Information" section to access the pre-built knowledge base directories.

Environment Modules

Run module spider YAGO to find out what environment modules are available for this application.

System Variables

  • HPC_YAGO_DIR - installation directory
  • HPC_YAGO_BIN - executable directory
  • HPC_YAGO_KBDIR - Data directory housing the most recent build of the knowledge base data
  • HPC_YAGO_KBBASE - Base directory with sub-directories for versions of the KB data (see "Additional Information" section)

Additional Information

The latest (unverified) build of the YAGO4 database can be referenced directly using the HPC_YAGO_KBDIR environment variable:

$ module load yago/4
$ ls -la ${HPC_YAGO_KBDIR}

or using a combination of the HPC_YAGO_KBBASE env variable and the directory name "kb":

$ module load yago/4
$ ls -la ${HPC_YAGO_KBBASE}/kb

The author-built and verified version of the database (with data as of February 24, 2020) can also be accessed using a combination of the HPC_YAGO_KBBASE and a specific sub-directory:

$ module load yago/4
$ ls -la ${HPC_YAGO_KBBASE}/kb-20200224
