DBpedia has become one of the major sources of structured knowledge extracted from Wikipedia. Such structures gradually re-shape the representation of Topics as new events relevant to such topics emerge. Such changes make evident the continuous evolution of topic representations and introduce new challenges to supervised topic classification tasks, since labelled data can rapidly become outdated. Here we analyse topic changes in DBpedia and propose the use of semantic features as a more stable representation of a topic. Our experiments show promising results in understanding how the relevance of features to a topic changes over time.
