A late addition has been made to the agenda for the Semantic Technology and Business Conference (#SemTechBiz) in Berlin, Germany. The conference, which takes place February 6-7 in Berlin, Germany, will now feature a session entitled Wikipedia’s Next Big Thing: The Wikidata Project. Space is still available to see this and many other highly anticipated sessions, panels, and demonstrations at SemTechBiz Berlin.

Wikidata is a new Wikimedia project, supporting the goal of the Wikimedia Foundation to develop and maintain open content, wiki-based projects over the sum of human knowledge, and provide the full contents of those projects to the public free of charge. Wikidata will provide an infrastructure and stable URLs to store and access data for use in Wikipedia articles, as well as for any other use. It will be similar to the way that Wikimedia Commons stores and provides public access to multimedia files today. Wikidata will be based on technologies pioneered in Semantic MediaWiki, and will be a powerful force for bringing structured data into Wikipedia, and making it available to everyone, for free.
