Announcing Wikimapper

My current NLP research is about Entity Linking, that is disamiguating a mention, e.g. Obama with regard to a knowledge base. When using Wikidata for that, it would be linked to Q76. It is a difficult problem to create an automatic system for that, as mentions are often very ambiguous. For instance when linking Obama, possible candidates are among others Barack Obama, his wife Michelle Obama or even a city in Japan.
