as you know, Tpt has been working as an intern this summer at Google. He
finished his work a few weeks ago and I am happy to announce today the
publication of all scripts and the resulting data he has been working on.
Additionally, we publish a few novel visualizations of the data in Wikidata
and Freebase. We are still working on the actual report summarizing the
effort and providing numbers on its effectiveness and progress. This will
take another few weeks.
First, thanks to Tpt for his amazing work! I have not expected to see such
rich results. He has exceeded my expectations by far, and produced much more
transferable data than I expected. Additionally, he also was working on the
primary sources tool directly and helped Marco Fossati to upload a second,
sports-related dataset (you can select that by clicking on the gears icon
next to the Freebase item link in the sidebar on Wikidata, when you switch
on the Primary Sources tool).
Thanks a lot for all this. It's helping make Wikidata even better.
Looking forward to the report.
