   Abstract

Within only a few years, the free encyclopedia Wikipedia has become one of the most important online knowledge sources. The project "Semantic MediaWiki" engages in the conception and development of semantic extensions to MediaWiki – the software underlying Wikipedia. The goal is to enable simple, machine-based processing of Wiki-content by allowing users to provide suitable semantic annotations. However, the special Wiki environment and the multitude of envisaged applications impose a number of additional requirements. In this talk we describe the current state of the project – and how it is applied in use cases both within closed and open communities – and also lay out the vision of a Semantic Wikipedia, and how the Web as a whole would benefit from it.
