Dataset Card for DBpedia14

Dataset Summary

The DBpedia ontology classification dataset is constructed by picking 14 non-overlapping classes from DBpedia 2014. They are listed in classes.txt. From each of thse 14 ontology classes, we randomly choose 40,000 training samples and 5,000 testing samples. Therefore, the total size of the training dataset is 560,000 and testing dataset 70,000. There are 3 columns in the dataset (same for train and test splits), corresponding to class index (1 to 14), title and content. The title and content are escaped using double quotes ("), and any internal double quote is escaped by 2 double quotes (""). There are no new lines in title or content.

Supported Tasks and Leaderboards

  • text-classification, topic-classification: The dataset is mainly used for text classification: given the content and the title, predict the correct topic.

Languages

Although DBpedia is a multilingual knowledge base, the DBpedia14 extract contains English data mainly, other languages may appear (e.g. a film whose title is origanlly not English).

Dataset Structure

Data Instances

A typical data point, comprises of a title, a content and the corresponding label.

An example from the DBpedia test set looks as follows:

{
    'title':'',
    'content':" TY KU /taɪkuː/ is an American alcoholic beverage company that specializes in sake and other spirits. The privately-held company was founded in 2004 and is headquartered in New York City New York. While based in New York TY KU's beverages are made in Japan through a joint venture with two sake breweries. Since 2011 TY KU's growth has extended its products into all 50 states.",
    'label':0
}

Data Fields

  • 'title': a string containing the title of the document - escaped using double quotes (") and any internal double quote is escaped by 2 double quotes ("").
  • 'content': a string containing the body of the document - escaped using double quotes (") and any internal double quote is escaped by 2 double quotes ("").
  • 'label': one of the 14 possible topics.

Data Splits

The data is split into a training and test set. For each of the 14 classes we have 40,000 training samples and 5,000 testing samples. Therefore, the total size of the training dataset is 560,000 and testing dataset 70,000.
