Leveraging Wikimedia APIs for open knowledge-sharing

None
Wikipedia and its sister projects contain a treasure trove of open knowledge content in 300+ languages that can be used by anyone for free. In recent years, technology partners from around the world have become increasingly interested in leveraging Wikimedia’s APIs to reuse this content on their platforms, in order to add context to and enrich their reading and learning experiences. How can we use Wikimedia content to create and deliver new relevant, just-in-time experiences to a diverse global audience? How can we ensure that new reuse products remain freely licensed and open to contribution? In this session, we will explore ways that Wikimedia APIs have been used to access and reuse Wikimedia content to date, and invite our participants to brainstorm new API-assisted reuse workflows that can help fulfill Wikimedia’s mission of sharing the sum of all human knowledge globally.
