Knowledge equity is a foundational principle of the Wikimedia movement. It drives efforts to break down the social, political, and technical barriers preventing people from accessing free knowledge. In this talk, we will see how computer vision and natural language processing can support knowledge equity and help democratize the access to free knowledge. We will look at technologies designed to bridge knowledge gaps in Wikipedia and Wikidata, and we will learn how science can promote knowledge integrity, help monitor information quality and support the fight against disinformation in Wikimedia spaces. We will discuss current work in these spaces, with a focus on open questions and future research.
