YAGO is a large knowledge base, which we built up by information extraction techniques from Internet sources. YAGO contains about 10 million entities and concepts, and knows more than 100 million facts about them. We use techniques from logics to ensure the consistency of our data – YAGO has a false-positive rate of only 5%. YAGO is freely available for download and querying. YAGO is already being used in some semantic projects, and could be the starting point for a new generation of search engines.
