>> Making Knowledge Bases More Complete
>>
>> By Fabian Suchanek, Télécom Paris, Institut Polytechnique de Paris
>>
>> A Knowledge Base (KB) is a computer-readable collection of facts about
>> the world (examples are Wikidata, DBpedia, and YAGO). The problem is that
>> these KBs are often missing entities or facts. In this talk, I present some
>> new methods to combat this incompleteness. I will also quickly talk about
>> some other research projects we are currently pursuing, including a new
>> version of YAGO. Publications <https://suchanek.name/work/publications/>

>> The Dynamics of Peer-Produced Political Information During the 2016 U.S.
>> Presidential Campaign
>>
>> By Brian Keegan, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Information
>> Science, University of Colorado Boulder
>>
>> Wikipedia plays a crucial role for online information seeking and its
>> editors have a remarkable capacity to rapidly revise its content in
>> response to current events. How did the production and consumption of
>> political information on Wikipedia mirror the dynamics of the 2016 U.S.
>> Presidential campaign? Drawing on systems justification theory and methods
>> for measuring the enthusiasm gap among voters, this paper quantitatively
>> analyzes the candidates' biographical and related articles and their
>> editors. Information production and consumption patterns match major events
>> over the course of the campaign, but Trump-related articles show
>> consistently higher levels of engagement than Clinton-related articles.
>> Analysis of the editors' participation and backgrounds show analogous
>> shifts in the composition and durability of the collaborations around each
>> candidate. The implications for using Wikipedia to monitor political
>> engagement are discussed. Paper
