Wikidata: a free collaborative knowledgebase
Commun. ACM, 57(10):78-85, 2014
  • KurzfassungAbstract
    Unnoticed by most of its readers, Wikipedia is currently undergoing dramatic changes, as its sister project Wikidata introduces a new multilingual ‘Wikipedia for data’ to manage the factual information of the popular online encyclopedia. With Wikipedia’s data becoming cleaned and integrated in a single location, opportunities arise for many new applications. In this article, we provide an extended overview of Wikidata, including its essential design choices and data model. Based on up-to-date statistics, we discuss the project's development so far and outline interesting application areas for this new resource.
  • Bemerkung: Note: As of March 2014, this is the main reference on Wikidata, thus finally answering the question "What to cite on Wikidata?" that many people have been asking for some time. With the increasing relevance of the project, many more research papers about Wikidata should be forthcoming. The article is been published under an Open Access scheme. The PDF provided here is the original final version.


    Thanks to Yusuke Matsubara, this article is now also a available in a Japanese translation ウィキデータ:共同作業で作られるフリーな知識ベース".
