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'

 Abstract

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.

About our Speaker

Dr Martin Poulter has been the Wikimedian In Residence at the Bodleian Libraries and for the whole University of Oxford.
