The Web has enabled us to construct massive knowledge bases that enable both intelligent applications and complex analyses. The construction of these knowledge bases invariably involves combining multiple sources using a stack of human and automated decisions, which leads to an opaque process that hampers both transparency and repurposing. The intricacies of this problem are concretely formulated, along with potential research directions for addressing it.
