Learn about structured data

The Cofactor Knowledge Base is built from a number of layers, each contributing facts from an individual domain of knowledge. Cofactor Ora is concerned with the pronunciation of entity names. Cofactor Nym deals with identifying the social profile pages for entities.

Items in the Cofactor Knowledge Base are uniquely identified by a /m/, /g/, or /c/ followed by 3–8 characters, such as Lady Gaga (/m/0478__m).

Statements about items belong to individual layers, either Ora or Nym, and describe detailed characteristics of an item. For a movie, you can use Ora to add a statement specifying how its name is pronounced in any language. For a person or organization, you can use Nym to add their social profiles.
