Wikipedia rolls out our research on providing semantic information for mathematical formulae

As of January 9, Wikipedia allows semantically enhancing mathematical formulae with the definitions of the terms they contain. For example, the formula of the famous mass-energy equivalence E=mc² now contains information on the variables E, m, and c. Clicking on the formula opens an information page (see figure) that displays the meanings of the variables and links to additional specifications of the formula’s terms. Our [...]
