Triple Scoring

Compute relevance scores for triples from type-like relations.

For example, the triple "Johnny_Depp profession Actor" should get a high score, because acting is Depp's main profession, whereas "Quentin_Tarantino profession Actor" should get a low score, because Tarantino is more of a director than an actor. Such scores are a fundamental ingredient when ranking results in entity search.
