Closer to the brickwall to knoweldge
I wrote a simple page that produces a picture of a thing: http://www.zaragozas.info/hugo/vocab1.php
It uses DBPedia to find a the infobox of a wikipedia entity and query for its picture.
It works very nicely in some examples. Try: wine, peach, “Karl Marx”, woman, dog, fear, swimming…
It also fails on many others. Try: green, war,
And the picture is not what you expect sometimes. Try notebook, apple…
In my opinion having services such as these is very important, not because they bring us closer to AI or knowledge, but because they bring us closer towards the many brick walls separating us from them!
