Abstract Wikipedia is a Wikimedia Foundation project that aims to create a language-independent version of Wikipedia using structured data from Wikidata.[1][2][3][4] It was conceived by Denny Vrandečić (de), the co-founder of Wikidata, in a Google research paper in April 2020,[5] formally proposed in May 2020 (as Wikilambda), and approved by the Wikimedia Foundation board of trustees in July 2020.[6][7][8] The name is considered provisional.[9]
