Wikidata: The Next Big Thing for Wikipedia



Abstract. Wikidata is a new Wikimedia project that will provide an infrastructure to store and access structured data for use in Wikipedia articles, similar to the way that Wikimedia Commons stores and provides public access to multimedia files today. To achieve this, Wikidata must become one of the largest collections of human-authored structured information, freely available on the Web. Wikidata will be based on technologies pioneered in Semantic MediaWiki, and will support Web standards for open information exchange. This talk gives an overview of the project, explains design choices, and discusses its impact on the Semantic Web.
