Description

Wikidata is the free knowledge base of the Wikimedia Foundation. A structured, machine-readable pool of data that anyone can edit and use. Therefore, it is a shining example of Open Knowledge and FAIR data in the semantic web: the data are findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable.

But how does the semantic web work? How is the information structured and interlinked? How can we find and use the information or contribute to it ourselves? Find out in this hands-on workshop by using Wikidata.

The workshop is part of a series of in-depth modules on research data management (FDM II - modular), which are regularly offered on the 4th Wednesday of the month. The modules are on par with each other and can be attended independently. Please join the RWTHmoodle course "Research Data Management - an Overview (RDM I - online)" in advance.

Objective

After attending this RDM II module, you will understand the structure of information in form of knowledge graphs as well as their technical implementation in the semantic web. You will be able to query, visualize and export data from Wikidata.

Methods

Lecture and hands-on exercises

Participation Requirements
