TAC KBP 2017 Data

Data that are required for the TAC KBP 2017 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 2017 data is restricted to registered TAC KBP 2017 participants who have submitted all the required User Agreement forms. Each participating team will provide a TAC 2017 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 2017 Team ID and password for 2017. Teams must also submit new (current) User Agreement forms for 2017. Once the required User Agreement forms have been received for that team, NIST will activate the TAC 2017 Team ID and Password to give access to password-protected KBP 2017 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 2017 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; 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.

In addition to KBP resources listed in the 2017 Text Analysis Conference (TAC) Knowledge Base Population Evaluation License Agreement, the following KBP 2017 development data and evaluation data are available to KBP 2017 teams:

  • Non-TAC KBP Resources (for system development)
    1. LDC2017E24: DEFT ERE Cross-Doc Event Coreference Training Data Annotation (request from the LDC)

  • KBP Tracks (Source Corpora)
    1. LDC2017E25: TAC KBP 2017 Evaluation Source Corpus V1.1 (Download README here and Corpus here) (July 6, 2017)

  • Cold Start SF/KB Track
    1. TAC KBP 2017 Cold Start Slot Filling Evaluation Queries (request from tac-manager@nist.gov) (July 12, 2017)
