This submission has been designated as a lightning talk at WikiConference North America 2019.


Machine learning for wiki by university students


Reliability of Information

Type of session:



In the recent past, artificial intelligence and machine learning were tools for specialists and computer scientists. Now, recent advances in technology, data availability, and social awareness have greatly increased the ease with which students can use techniques in data science to do interesting research in Wikimedia projects as part of a routine college learning experience.

This presentation will present Wikimedia-based machine learning projects at the University of Virginia's School of Data Science as examples of projects which any students might do to practice their lessons and be awesome in the wiki.

  • automated detection of misconduct
  • suggesting academic papers as sources for wiki articles
  • computer vision to sort images in Wikimedia Commons
  • fair representation of underrepresented groups in academia
