Hello everyone, The next Research Showcase will be live-streamed Wednesday, October 19, at 9:30 AM PST/16:30 UTC. Find your local time here <https://zonestamp.toolforge.org/1666197004>.
YouTube stream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ML-ULyARpU4 Members of the Research team will collect questions on IRC at #wikimedia-research and YouTube. This month's presentation is a panel discussion celebrating Wikidata's 10th birthday! October 2022 marks the tenth anniversary of the launch of Wikidata ( www.wikidata.org). In ten years, this project has become the largest community-driven free knowledge graph in the world, enabling a common knowledge base for Wikimedia projects. The language-independent nature of Wikidata has greatly improved the maintenance and consistency of knowledge across Wikipedia language editions, fostering knowledge equity in Wikimedia. In addition, since Wikidata is a collaborative project that can be read and edited by humans and machines alike, it is also widely used in third-party applications delivering knowledge as a service for all. The Wikimedia Research community has devoted significant effort and resources in studying the foundations, capabilities and applications of Wikidata, from the complex requirements of representing real-world knowledge in a multilingual environment to the needs to assess the quality of data and sources in Wikidata. To learn more about the state of the art of Wikidata and research challenges in the era of AI/ML, we will celebrate this tenth anniversary with a panel that will bring together established researchers/practitioners in this field. The panel will be moderated by Denny Vrandečić (WMF) with panelists Lydia Pintscher (WMDE), Elena Simperl (King's College London), Katherine Thornton (Yale), and Markus Krötzsch (Technical University of Dresden).
