tool to make it easy to classify unclassified Items
Open, Needs TriagePublic


About 3% of Wikidata's Items do not currently have a classifying statement on them using Properties like "instance of", "subclass of", "part of" or "has part". These classifying Properties are very important however because they help us know what the Item is about and they are important for the next steps in the quality improvement process.

We should have a tool that finds unclassified Items and supports editors in adding classifying statements to them.

@Lydia_Pintscher I think we should first (1) assess those items without classifying properties and (2) see if (at least on the average) there is enough data about them to consider (3) the development of a recommendation system for their classification. Let me know if you want me to take this over.

From what I've seen there is usually very little context to work with for a recommender system, unfortunately. So I fear this is really something where a human needs to sit down and decide.

@Lydia_Pintscher I understand, we are just looking for a tool to expose such items to the community better. Got it.

Yeah that was my thinking for the moment.
