The teams also used various knowledge bases, including Amazon's Evi, Freebase, and Wikidata
for retrieving general knowledge, facts, and news, and for general question answering.
Since our wikifier does not by default distinguish between named entities and other Wikipedia concepts, we have explicitly excluded concepts that are not named entities (based on their class membership in the WikiData
ontology) from the output of our Wikifier for the purposes of this experiment.

Wikipedia's own semantic web initiative, Wikidata
, has also not escaped controversy.
(It was announced in late 2014 that Freebase will be shutting down in 2015, but all data will be transferred to the Wikimedia Foundation project Wikidata
The authors, Navino Evans and Sean McBirnie, are now working on the next phase, with the aim of using Wikidata
(the data-driven arm of the Wiki stable) as the main source for each event.
We then moved to what was a very important breakdown of the Wikipedia initiative - "Wikidata
: A foundation to build your apps on" by Lydia Pintscher.
Wikimedia Deutschland e.V, a non-profit organisation dedicated to the dissemination of free knowledge and the German chapter of the international Wikimedia movement, announced on Friday that it is beginning the development of a new Wikimedia project called Wikidata
, which will provide a collaboratively edited database of knowledge.
The goal of the Wikipedia workshop was to bring together researchers exploring all aspects of Wikimedia websites such as Wikipedia, Wikidata
, and Commons.
