Begun as a research project from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and the University of Technology Dresden, WebKnox is an ontology-driven fact extraction engine built to provide direct, fast, and complete answers to questions on any topic a user can think of. To answer a question WebKnox uses external services that might have previously provided an answer or computes an answer using its knowledge base. If those options fail, WebKnox tries to find an answer on the fly.
WebKnox hosts a suite of REST APIs delivering a range of web services. The WebKnox Web API allows applications to process web pages in a variety of ways. The API is capable of detecting a web page’s language as well as the date the page was published or last edited. The API is also able to extract metadata such as a web page’s author, primary content, or factual information, and to retrieve page rankings.
