Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
WikiData is an open and multilingual knowledge base that currently involves over 25 million entities and that defines links between them. Among these links, we can find clinical and medical ones like drug-drug interaction, genetic associations, disease-symptom relationship... In this presentation, we will explain how using such links can help in ameliorating the efficiency, the quality and the automation of clinical and medical tasks such as clinical decision making, communication with patients and the creation of biomedical systematic or narrative reviews...
