Talk Title: The Science of Knowledge Integrity – Research at Wikimedia

Talk Summary: Wikipedia is one of the most visited sites on the Web and a common source of information for many users. As an encyclopedia, Wikipedia is not a source of original information, but was conceived as a gateway to secondary sources: according to Wikipedia’s guidelines, to ensure knowledge integrity facts must be backed up by reliable sources that reflect the full spectrum of views on the topic. Although citations lie at the very heart of Wikipedia, little is known about how users interact with them, how contributors use them, and the overall citation coverage. In this talk, we will see how machine learning can support knowledge integrity and help understand and monitor information quality in Wikimedia spaces.
