DBpedia is part of the Google Summer of Code project 2023

So far, each year has brought us new project ideas, many amazing students and great project results that shaped the future of DBpedia. Like every year, we received many fantastic applications this year. Out of these applications 6 great projects from contributors all over the world were selected to work together with our mentors. Right now the contributors are in the middle of the coding phase. If you want to know more about this year’s projects go and have a look at the DBpedia blog.
