Diffeo grew out of the Text Retrieval Conference Knowledge Base Acceleration project (TREC KBA), which Diffeo organized for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and DARPA Memex. TREC KBA evaluated algorithms for helping people discover new knowledge to add to a knowledge base like Wikipedia.
The hierarchical tree graph structure illustrates how Diffeo's cross-document cross-lingual interactive entity disambiguation algorithms help users discover new knowledge.
