Knowledge graphs are being deployed in many enterprises and institutions. An easy-to-use, well-designed infrastructure for such knowledge graphs is not obvious. After the success of Wikidata, many institutions are looking at the software infrastructure behind it, namely Wikibase.
In this paper we introduce Wikibase, describe its different software components and the tools that have emerged around it. In particular, we detail how Wikibase is used as the infrastructure behind the “EU Knowledge Graph”, which is deployed at the European Commission. This graph mainly integrates projects funded by the European Union, and is used to make these projects visible to and easily accessible by citizens with no technical background.
Moreover, we explain how this deployment compares to a more classical approach to building RDF knowledge graphs, and point to other projects that are using Wikibase as an underlying infrastructure.
