DBpedia Spotlight from WBSG at Freie Universität Berlin is a web service and Java/Scala API that extracts DBpedia Resources from natural language text, and is able to generate annotations in HTML, RDFa, XML, JSON, etc. Level of annotation (and the precision/recall trade-off) can be configured by confidence/support parameters, and annotations can be filtered to contain only certain types (from the DBpedia Ontology) or entities matching arbitrary SPARQL queries.
