Wikipedia as domain knowledge networks: Domain extraction and statistical measurement is a 2011 conference paper written in English by Fang Z., Wang J., Liu B., Gong W. and published in KDIR 2011 - Proceedings of the International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval.

[edit] Abstract

This paper investigates knowledge networks of specific domains extracted from Wikipedia and performs statistical measurements to selected domains. In particular, we first present an efficient method to extract a specific domain knowledge network from Wikipedia. We then extract four domain networks on, respectively, mathematics, physics, biology, and chemistry. We compare the mathematics domain network extracted from Wikipedia with MathWorld, the web's most extensive mathematical resource created and maintained by professional mathematicians, and show that they are statistically similar to each other. This indicates that Math- World and Wikipedia's mathematics domain knowledge share a similar internal structure. Such information may be useful for investigating knowledge networks.
