The Human Know-How Dataset

  • Paolo Pareti (Creator)
  • Ewan Klein (Creator)



The Human Know-How Dataset describes 211,696 human activities from many different domains. These activities are decomposed into 2,609,236 entities (each with an English textual label). These entities represent over two million actions and half a million pre-requisites. Actions are interconnected both according to their dependencies (temporal/logical orders between actions) and decompositions (decomposition of complex actions into simpler ones). This dataset has been integrated with DBpedia (259,568 links).
