Examples

Basic Examples

Retrieve the ResourceObject:

In[1]:=
ResourceObject["Entity Store of People Mentioned in Stephen Wolfram's \
A New Kind of Science"]
Out[1]=

View the data:

In[2]:=
ResourceData["Entity Store of People Mentioned in Stephen Wolfram's A \
New Kind of Science"]
Out[2]=

Add to the central list of entity stores:

In[3]:=
PrependTo[$EntityStores, 
 ResourceData[
  "Entity Store of People Mentioned in Stephen Wolfram's A New Kind \
of Science"]]
Out[3]=

Visualization

Create a histogram of the birth dates of living people:

In[4]:=
EntityValue[EntityClass["NKSPerson", "Alive"], 
  "BirthYear"] // DateHistogram
Out[4]=

Analysis

Get the first 5 dead people listed in the entity store:

In[5]:=
Take[EntityClass["NKSPerson", "Dead"] // EntityList, 5]
Out[5]=

Get the list of people born before 0 AD:

In[6]:=
EntityClass["NKSPerson", 
  "BirthYear" -> LessThan[DateObject[{0}]]] // EntityList
Out[6]=

Get a random sample of five people who also have person entities:

In[7]:=
RandomSample[
 EntityClass["NKSPerson", "HasEntity" -> MatchQ[True]] // EntityList,
  5]
Out[7]=
