Abstract

Providing digital representation of critical discourses in addition to and complementing traditional semantic annotations is a central topic in recent knowledge representation discussions. This includes, e.g., provenance information, evolving knowledge, and metadata versioning. The Cultural Heritage domain (CH) (and LOD datasets thereof is exemplary of this problem, rich in incomplete data, subjective analyses, concurring statements and controversies between annotators. Accurately representing this complexity helps towards computational analyses of critical discourses in the Humanities. Wikidata supports some complex representation of data, even allowing multiple and possibly competing assertions and versions of the described entities. Within the activities of our research proposal (Daquino et al. 2022), we surveyed Wikidata approaches to represent complex knowledge: (1) ranked statements, (2) "nature of statements" qualifiers, (3) null-valued objects. In this work we examine whether complex knowledge about Cultural Heritage can be satisfactorily represented in Wikidata KB, and whether existing representation methods exhaustively represent CH domain.
