Abstract
Ontologies are becoming more and more popular as background knowledge for intelligent applications. Up to now, there has been a schism between manually assembled, highly axiomatic ontologies and large, automatically constructed knowledge bases. This report discusses how the two worlds can be brought together by combining the high-level axiomatizations from the Standard Upper Merged Ontology (SUMO) with the extensive world knowledge of the YAGO ontology. On the theoretical side, it analyses the differences between the knowledge representation in YAGO and SUMO. On the practical side, this report explains how the two resources can be merged. This yields a new large-scale formal ontology, which provides information about millions of entities such as people, cities, organizations, and companies. This report is the detailed version of our paper at ICTAI 2008.
