[Unconference] How to use Wikidata to build web tools for the social good
Closed, ResolvedPublic


  • Title of session (the more detailed, the better!): How to use Wikidata to build web tools for the social good
  • Session description: In this session, we describe the methods that can be used for creating a web tool based on Wikidata (i.e., Wikidata Query Service, Wikibase Integrator, Wikidata Hub, Wikimedia Toolforge, Flask, Requests, ElasticSearch) through the screening of the source code of two tools developed in this context of social good projects: Sawtpedia for generating QRCodes for the voice recordings of Wikipedia Pages and MedCYN for providing clinical decision support. After that, we discuss how these methods of reusing Wikidata can be used for many other real-life applications, particularly in the African context.
