Abstract
An interesting study of the role of the Knowledge Graph in keeping people on Google (rather than clicking through to Wikipedia, or worse, heading off into better alternatives (CDC, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Amazon's IMDB are mentioned). The Knowledge Graph is based on Wikipedia / Wikidata.
Devlin suggests that the contributions made by Google ($2 million in 2010) and by Sergey Brin ($1.5 million from 2011-2013) to the WMF are also good investments, though they do not pay content providers.

Notes
How exactly is the Knowledge Graph built? I feel that I need to read more on this subject.
