“In a joint talk with the Wikipedia Society, Dr Magnus Manske will speak on Wikidata: the free knowledge base that can be read and edited by humans and machines alike. It is for data what Wikimedia Commons is for media files: it centralizes access to and management of structured data, such as interwiki references and statistical information. It has been described as one of the most exciting innovations in encyclopedic history, since it enables us to structure data on Wikipedia and interlink concepts from different languages. Come along to learn more about all its functionality, how it works, and how it will change the future!”

Admission free to CUCaTS members, £2 otherwise. Membership may also be bought at the door. As usual refreshments will be served 15 minutes before the start of the talk.
