Labels are very important for entity recognition in text. The KIM data model relies on the use of the properties *rdfs:label* and *protons:mainLabel*. Therefore, we advise you to set meaningful values for *rdfs:label* and *protons:mainLabel* for each instance.

But first, configure the property ENTITY_DESCR in {{KIM/config/}}.

The ENTITY_DESCR property determines the way the semantic repository stores the entity labels. It can be set to - {{aliases}} or {{labels}}. Using {{labels}} is generally the preferred approach. It is simpler and more efficient. {{Aliases}} is used in more complex cases, where you need to also keep metadata for the specific {{labels}}. Therefore, make sure this property is set to {{Labels}}.

After that, look at {{dbpedia_instances.nt}}. You can see that all instance labels are defined with the predicate *foaf:name* . Create an *rdfs:label* statement for each *foaf:name* statement. You can do this in several ways.

* Use inference rules to create the new statements, if you see a pattern. The rule will exist in the OWLIM inference rules definitions in {{KIM/context/default/kb/KIMRules.pie}} and this is how it will look like:

e <protons:generatedBy> <>
e <foaf:name> name
e <rdfs:label> name

* tell OWLIM that *foaf:name* and *rdfs:label* are the same:

foaf:name owl:sameAs rdfs:label .

This will cause OWLIM to create *rdfs:label* statement for every *foaf:name* statement and vice versa.

* In general it is recommended to use explicit statements. So create a file with explicit labels definitions called {{dbpedia_labels.n3}} and put it in the {{dbpedia}} folder. Update the definitions in {{KIM/config/owlim.ttl}}.

<> rdfs:label "Arsenal" .
<> rdfs:label "Arsenal Football Club" .
<> rdfs:label "The Gunners" .

Finally what you have to consider is the *protons:mainLabel*. It serves as a primary representation aspect of an entity in the graphical interface. The *protons:mainLabel* is actually a sub-property of rdfs:label. Therefore, a property rdfs:label will be added to every *protons:mainLabel*.

Define the *protons:mainLabel* for each instance in the ontology:

{noformat}@prefix protons: <> .{noformat}
<> protons:mainLabel "ABBA" .
<> protons:mainLabel "Asia" .

Put the definitions in the {{dbpedia}} folder in a file called {{dbpedia_main_labels.n3}} and add the file to the list of definitions in {{KIM/config/owlim.ttl}}.

Now you come to the stage where you incorporate DBpedia in the default *KIM* IE pipeline, and make the pipeline aware of the knowledge base for this new mapped ontology.
