Knowledge crystal: using Wikibase for structured discussion
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We want to structure discussions and debates so that they can crystallize knowledge. Each comment has its own Wikibase item and connects to other items to form a network that represents the discussion. We set up a Wikibase instance and created visualisations and a visual editor. We want to find good use cases such as more open and improved online discussions on e.g. Wikiversity or in Wikipedia in the case of complex and heated topics where analytical approach could offer added value to debates.
