Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)
Wikidata is making enormous strides in its mission to giving more people more access to more knowledge. We are exploring new ways of accessing our content. We are answering natural language questions. We are enabling editors to reach a wider audience. We are finding new ways to contribute to our projects. We are connecting genes and diseases to support finding cures. This and much more is Wikidata. Wikidata is becoming the backbone of Wikimedia and a hub in the open data web. Let's explore what this means for Wikimedia! What is Wikidata enabling us to do already? Which amazing things are people building using our data? How is Wikidata helping us improve our content and tools? How is Wikidata tearing down barriers between our projects? How is Wikidata going to evolve? How can we use Wikidata to truly get closer to our vision of every single human being freely sharing in the sum of all knowledge? Come and find out in this session!
