Title: What we have learned from talking to large commercial users of Wikimedia content
Speaker: Lane Becker / LBecker (WMF) and Liam Wyatt / Lwyatt (WMF) / Wittylama
Abstract:Wikimedia content is built into, and re-used by, a large number of large commercial organisations for a large variety of reasons. This poses some great challenges for the Wikimedia movement, as well as some big potential opportunities. The Wikimedia 'Enterprise' team has been talking with many of them. Come and 'ask us anything' to learn what we've discovered!

Recent external trends[1] show that the internet ecosystem that Wikimedia grew up in is changing, fast. This affects how and where the public accesses the knowledge in our projects (and whether they know where it came from, that they can contribute too, and donate). These trends also means that the kinds of information people prefer is changing, and the ways that Wikimedia content is presented, or what it's transformed into, is different.

Topics include: Attribution (inc. sound logo) and fighting "Disintermediation"; identifying "Breaking news"; structured page content (Wikidata, Tables, Infoboxes); and implications of training data for AI bots.

Presented at: Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, 2023-08-19 02:00 to 02:30 UTC
