This is the official repo for TypeNet, a hierarchical type system for the task of fine grained entity typing. It contains 1081 freebase types, and 860 Wordnet types organised in a deep hierarchy with an average depth of 7.8.
Instructions for Using the Dataset
To generate a joblib dump that creates a transitive closure of the TypeNet dag, run
python process_taxonomy.py. This generates 2 joblibs TypeNet_transitive_closure.joblib and TypeNet_type2idx.joblib. The first joblib is an adjacency matrix of size 1941 x 1941, and the second joblib maps TypeNet types to their ids.
