Abstract

The Wikimedia Foundation provides extensive and well-known collaborative knowledge repositories like Wikipedia and Wikidata. While knowledge in Wikipedia is represented in written narratives on certain items, Wikidata represents this knowledge through triple-shaped statements. However, some statements, and especially, assertions, beliefs, or negations might only become valid when assuming certain context conditions. While those conditions are usually mentioned in written narratives, we state the question whether Wikidata's qualifier data model is enough for a reliable context-compatible information fusion.
