TAC KBP 2014 Data

Data that are required for the TAC KBP 2014 tracks are distributed at no cost to track participants. Whenever possible, data are distributed by NIST or the Linguistic Data Consortium via Web download; data are mailed as physical disks only if they cannot be made available for download.

Access to TAC KBP 2014 data is restricted to registered TAC KBP 2014 participants who have submitted all the required User Agreement forms. Each participating team will provide a TAC KBP 2014 Team ID and will receive a Team Password upon registration. Teams that have participated in past TAC evaluations must register and obtain a new TAC KBP 2014 Team ID and password for 2014. Teams must also submit new (current) User Agreement forms for 2014. Once the required User Agreement forms have been received for that team, NIST will activate the TAC KBP 2014 Team ID and Password to give access to password-protected KBP 2014 resources that are distributed by NIST (a different username and password are required for data that are downloaded from LDC's intranet).

Data resources from past KBP evaluations listed in the 2014 Text Analysis Conference (TAC) Knowledge Base Population Evaluation License Agreement are available for system development and must be requested by name and catalog number from the LDC upon registration; some of these data resources (specifically, the reference KB) will also be reused in some tracks in the KBP 2014 evaluation, and teams are responsible for requesting the past KBP data that are relevant for their respective tracks when submitting the Evaluation License Agreement to the LDC. When additional KBP 2014 data become available for each track, they will automatically be distributed to KBP 2014 teams registered for that track.

In addition to KBP resources listed in the 2014 Text Analysis Conference (TAC) Knowledge Base Population Evaluation License Agreement, the following KBP 2014 evaluation data have been distributed to KBP 2014 teams that are registered for each track:
