CSAW: Curating and Searching the Annotated Web
Our ambition is to annotate mentions of named entities on billions
of Web pages with IDs, thus linking them to entity nodes in Wikipedia.
This will enable searching with entities and relationships at an
unprecedented scale. The project has two parts: annotating token
segments on Web pages with Wikipedia entity IDs, and a new aggregated
search mechanism for quantities.

soumen.in although the certificate hostname will not match and you
will get a warning. You will get a warning anyway because the
certificate is self-signed.
