The Oxford e-Research Centre is pleased to welcome Dr Martin Poulter from Bodleian Libraries. He will present a seminar entitled 'Wikidata: Knowledge as a service'. Wikidata is an ambitious attempt to sum up human science, scholarship and culture in open, machine-readable, structured data. This talk is about how Wikidata resembles and differs from other databases, what you can and can't do with it, and how other databases and applications benefit from its existence.
