  • Context:
    • It is designed to answer questions of the type "Who is <artist X>?".
    • It first populates a knowledge base with information extracted from the Web and then using this knowledge base to produce artist biographies.
    • It uses an Ontology based on CIDOC CRM, which was originally developed to annotate cultural heritage documentation.
    • Its Narrative Generation follow a manually specified "biography" template.
