YAGO is a large knowledge base that is built automatically from Wikipedia, WordNet and GeoNames. The project combines information from Wikipedias in 10 different languages into a coherent whole, thus giving the knowledge a multilingual dimension. It also attaches spatial and temporal information to many facts, and thus allows the user to query the data over space and time. YAGO focuses on extraction quality and achieves a manually evaluated precision of 95 %. In this paper, we explain how YAGO is built from its sources, how its quality is evaluated, how a user can access it, and how other projects utilize it.
