DBpedia currently maintains a mapping between Wikipedia info-box properties to the DBpedia ontology, since several similar templates exist to describe the same type of info-boxes. The aim of the project is to enrich the existing mapping and possibly correct the incorrect mapping's using Wikidata.

Several wikipedia pages use Wikidata values directly in their infoboxes. Hence by using the mapping between Wikidata properties and DBpedia Ontology classes along with the info-box data across several such wiki pages we can collect several such mappings. The first phase of the project revolves around using various such wikipedia templates , finding their usages across the wikipedia pages and extracting as many mappings as possible.

In the second half of the project we use machine learning techniques to take care of any accidental / outlier usage of Wikidata mappings in wikipedia. At the end of the project we will be able to obtain a correct set of mapping which we can use to enrich the existing mapping.
