Fast Linking of Mathematical Wikidata Entities in Wikipedia Articles Using Annotation Recommendation

  title={Fast Linking of Mathematical Wikidata Entities in Wikipedia Articles Using Annotation Recommendation},
  author={Philipp Scharpf and Moritz Schubotz and Bela Gipp},
  journal={Companion Proceedings of the Web Conference 2021},
Mathematical information retrieval (MathIR) applications such as semantic formula search and question answering systems rely on knowledge-bases that link mathematical expressions to their natural language names. For database population, mathematical formulae need to be annotated and linked to semantic concepts, which is very time-consuming. In this paper, we present our approach to structure and speed up this process by using an application-driven strategy and AI-aided system. We evaluate the…

Representing Mathematical Formulae in Content MathML using Wikidata
In this paper, we describe how to represent mathematical formulae in Content MathML referring to the open knowledge-base Wikidata for the grounding of the semantics. By doing so, we link identifiers
Discovering Mathematical Objects of Interest—A Study of Mathematical Notations
This paper presents the first in-depth study on the distributions of mathematical notation in two large scientific corpora: the open access arXiv and the mathematical reviewing service for pure and applied mathematics zbMATH, and exemplifies the applicability of the results by presenting auto-completion for math inputs as the first contribution to math recommendation systems.
