All Possible Google Knowledge Panel Subtitles / Occupations / Titles / Categories (?)

I’m curious. Google Knowledge Panels typically have subtitles, like mine is “Writer”. So what are all the possibilities?

Well, it seems that the titles are often preceded by nationalities: American blogger, American actor, et al. So, we’re not going to list nationalities. Instead, I’m going to see what the occupations are. And I’ll cite where I found what.

  • Blogger (Perez Hilton)
  • Actor / Actress (Brad Pitt / Jennifer Aniston)
  • Musician (Jason Barnard)
  • Voice Actress / Actor (Amanda Winn-Lee)
  • Painter (Vincent van Gogh)(!)
  • Singer (Taylor Swift)
  • Rapper (Jay-Z)
  • 45th U.S. President (Donald Trump)
    • This one is interesting to me. Apparently they have a (rarely) used ‘counter’ for Presidents. Or, because this one is so special and rare, they might jsut put it in by hand. Who knows?
  • Minister (Martin Luther King Jr.)
  • President of Russia (Vladimir Putin)
  • United States Senator (Bernie Sanders)
  • Former Vice President of the United States (Mike Pence)
  • Barack Obama’s brother (Bernard Obama)
    • This one fucking throws me for a loop. I thought these were programmatic.
  • American-Kenyan politician (Malik Obama)
    • This is gettin’ really crazy… let’s try something new.
    • On Malik Obama’s Wikidata page, he is listed as “Kenyan-American businessman and politician”. So this is probably where this is coming from.
    • On Bernard Obama’s Wikidata page, he’s listed as “half-brother of Barack Obama”. So, something’s up.

It seems that these titles are not preset, and come from Wikidata’s… wikidata. ๐Ÿ˜›

The problem is, Martin Luther King Jr.’s Wikidata page, reads:

“American clergyman, activist, and leader in the American Civil Rights Movement”

So that goes against what I just thought.

In any case, I’m going to eventually find out how the ‘tabs’ above the Googoo Knowledge Panel work. But not right now, I’m le tired.
