Can artificial intelligence do automated writing of Wikipedia articles? No, perhaps machine learning can make recommendations to match published reliable sources to Wikipedia articles which could summarize and cite them. For example, if there is an article about a particular medical condition, could there be an automated process for a bot to recommend that article on the talk page of the relevant Wikipedia article?
Cochrane is a nonprofit organization and publisher of academic systematic reviews of medical guidelines. The Wikimedia community has recommended the articles as reliable sources for medical content since at least 2010, yet human labor has not yet matched many thousands of their publications to the Wikipedia articles where a wiki editor could summarize them.
This talk will give a brief overview of the quality control process in Wikipedia, a description of source citations, and present the Cochrane Collaboration Article and citation matching tool development project.
