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. 😛
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.
