Why knowledge must be modular for an Abstract Wikipedia

by Denny Vrandečić (Wikimedia Foundation)

Abstract: We will present the Abstract Wikipedia project, which aims to allow more people to share in a common baseline of knowledge across many languages. In order to do so, we will need to represent the content of a Wikipedia article in a language-independent notation. Such a notation will strongly resemble notations well known in knowledge representation research, and one may argue that Abstract Wikipedia will constitute a knowledge representation project. We will discuss some implications, raise a lot of open questions, and argue that we must use a modular approach to knowledge in order to allow for such a project.
