Wikidata is a project close to Semantic MediaWiki in many ways. Wikidata is live for 1 year now and a lot has been achieved. Wikibase, the software powering Wikidata has been written. A great community has formed around it. Wikidata is being filled with data. Wikipedia and others are starting to use it. We'll be taking a look at what Wikidata has achieved since its start, what we learned during this time and where it is going now. We'll also be demoing some of the tools developed by the community around Wikidata.
