Future Project: Wikipedia Knowledge Graph

Mock History

Current Revision

Mock Description

The Knowledge Graph should be a quick facts learning feature on Wikipedia. The feature should use standard types and should be compliant with the JSON-LD specification.


Some examples of how you can use the Wikipedia Knowledge Graph API include:

  • Getting a ranked list of the most notable entities that match certain criteria.
  • Predictively completing entities in a search box.
  • Annotating/organizing content using Wikipedia content.

Note: Expect the Knowledge Graph Search API to return only individual matching entities, rather than graphs of interconnected entities. If you need the latter, we recommend using data dumps from Wikidata instead.

Wikipedia has millions of Knowledge Graph-eligible entries that describe real-world entities like people, places, and things. These entities form the nodes of the graph.

The following are some of the types of entities to be found in the Knowledge Graph:

  • Book
  • BookSeries
  • EducationalOrganization
  • Event
  • GovernmentOrganization
  • LocalBusiness
  • Movie
  • MovieSeries
  • MusicAlbum
  • MusicGroup
  • MusicRecording
  • Organization
  • Periodical
  • Person
  • Place
  • SportsTeam
  • TVEpisode
  • TVSeries
  • VideoGame
  • VideoGameSeries
  • WebSite
