Thanks for the pointer.  It's an interesting demo.    (02)

But I find the simple summaries that Google generates from their
"knowledge graph" more useful.  They're also less annoying than
the glitzy graphics that make an impressive demo.    (03)

I'll admit that DBpedia can be useful as one component of a more
complete system, as it was for Watson.  A good system doesn't
need all the power of Watson, but it needs some way (eg, click
patterns) to evaluate and rank relevance.    (04)

In summary, DBpedia is useful as a component of a larger system.
But a helpful system that can enrich a document needs (a) much more
detailed analysis of the documents, (b) methods for determining what
kinds of information are relevant to the text, and (c) methods for
to evaluate and rank relevance.    (05)

Above all, a good interface must *not* be annoying.  Does anybody
remember Microsoft's Clippy?    (06)
