This page is an incomplete draft of a research project.
Information is incomplete and is likely to change substantially before the project starts.


Wikidata is a high-scale ontological database initially created to support Wikipedia in 2012 but has grown in use since that. In this research project, we introduce Wikidata as a structured database representing the sum of Biomedical knowledge and provide an overview of its features. Then, we provide methods based on Bibliometric-Enhanced information retrieval to enrich, verify and absolutely enhance Biomedical information available in Wikidata. Finally, we discuss the use of Wikidata and other ontologies for a variety of tasks such as the recommendation of medical services, Biomedical Natural Language Processing and Biomedical Decision Support.
