WikidataCon 2017

Last week, Adelheid Heftberger presented our work on “Employing Wikidata for Fostering Scholarly Research” at WikidataCon, the largest conference on Wikidata, in Berlin. In this work, we propose a novel workflow that allows how an annotation tool may integrate articles of disciplines of the humanities to annotate these articles and to subsequently, automatically ingest the annotations into the Wikidata platform. A first prototype of such a workflow has already been developed in a cooperation of Eva Zangerle with Freie Universität Berlin, Brandenburgisches Zentrum für Medienwissenschaften and Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften.

Please find further information on the publication on the according submission website and in the video recording of the presentation session (our talk begins at 16:15).
