Towards Understanding and Improving Multilingual Collaborative Ontology Development in Wikidata

John Samuel

Wikidata is a multilingual, open, linked, structured knowledge base. One of its major interesting features is the collaborative nature of ontological development for diverse domains. Even though Wikidata has around 4500 properties compared to the millions of items, their limited number cannot be overlooked because they form a major role in the creation of new items, especially for the manual interface. This article will take a look on understanding the present approach of property creation, mainly focusing on its multilingual aspects. It will also present a quick overview of an ongoing work called WDProp, a dashboard for real-time statistics on properties and their translation.
