Greater roadrunner: How would I add data to Wikidata in voice A.I. - and anticipating brain wave head sets?, [Wikidata] SQID evolved again: references, Glad to have heard back from Markus at Wikidata in Germany about this today

Glad to have heard back from Markus at Wikidata in Germany about this today:

Dear Scott,

Support for brain wave head sets is not on our current development plan, but pull requests are always welcome.

Finding SQID pages in Google will be difficult, since it is an all-Javascript application without static pages. Google may not see much of the content of our pages.

Hi Markus and Wikidatans, 

I'm resending my email of a few minutes ago in a new thread, and wondering about how all this might lead to very early Wikidata/SQID/Wikipedia planning for anticipating brain wave head sets? In anticipating voice use of Wikidata by other organizations (e.g. Google Voice +), is there anything different Wikidata might plan for in anticipating brain wave headsets - and even an open source / CC brain wave head set? ...  

Hi Markus, Egon, Gu, Joachim and Wikidatans, 

In Google voice in Android on my smartphone  I asked the following orally, and this is what was transcribed and understood AI -wise, and also these were the "hits" I got via Google search:

"How would I add data to Wiki data" (no question mark was transcribed)

"How would I get data using SQID from Wikidata"
but Google Voice doesn't recognize SQID yet, and it kept searching on "SQUID"

Then I asked orally/in voice .. 

"How would I edit Wikipedia"

... and I heard read back to me out loud, as well as saw in text at the top of the Google search hit list:

"To edit the whole page at once, click the "edit this page" tab at the top. To edit just one section, click the "edit" link to the right of the section heading. To edit on Wikipedia, you type in a special markup language called wikitext. See the cheat sheet for the most basic wikitext codes." (good to see wikitext mentioned, #Wikimedia-Office hour folks from June 21 at 2pm PT)

...and below this was this link ...

Then I asked in a further experimental mode (and Google Voice transcribed the following)
"how would I add MIT opencourseware to Wiki data" (capitalization and spacing by Google Voice)

And I didn't get any relevant "hits" linking these two databases, or, in particular, allowing me to add MIT OCW in 7 languages to Wikidata just using my voice. 

I then asked

"What is the Douglas Adams Wiki data page"

Then spelling out S-Q-I-D, and after a few further different attempts, I was able to orally ask
"What is the Wiki data S-Q-I-D page for Douglas Adams"

And I got the 2nd hit in Google search of

Which was your email to me Markus on Wednesday, June 21 (in a "osdir" which I hadn't seen before)!

Cool ... 

I then asked in Google Voice ...

"What is the Douglas Adams Wikipedia page"

got this ...
All this is great and exciting, and the very initial steps to engaging Wikidata with voice, as I see it, but via Google Voice (with its TensorFlow), and interoperability between organizations' data is so important and generative (especially given CC Wikidata and Google's opennesses), ... but not yet in a Wikidata voice project for example.

So, what are Wikidata plans for voice with AI ,machine learning and machine translation?

What are Wikidata plans for anticipating Google Voice (with TensorFlow) and by extension all other interesting voice AI projects (IBM, Amazon, Siri, etc ... )?

I'm curious further about planning for how "voice AI" projects (e.g. Google Voice) will engage Wikidata /SQID / Wikipedia and for robust interactivity and knowledge generation, and even, for example, my coding of Wikidata by voice.

The way such voice processes will further newly engage SQID references (which are such a varied, rich and remarkable source of data) could dramatically boost Wikidatas and SQIDs generativty, as well. 

How might I begin to plan to use "voice" with Wikidata and SQID (and also re adding CC MIT OCW in 7 languages to CC World University and School, per an extended correspondence with MIT OCW's Dean Cecilia d'Oliveira this springs when WUaS was in a UC Berkeley Law class - and for anticipating student applications this autumn)?

Could prospective students begin to apply in voice to WUaS, for example, as if applying to MIT or Stanford from around the world, first in English? 

Thank you.

Best regards, Scott
