  • Navajo for friendship
  • Unclear how friendship relates to the idea of functions, templates, or translation. Unclear pronunciation. Also, "wikike.org" is a no-go because it contains an ethnic slur in English (but maybe "wiki-ke.org" could avoid that). PiRSquared17 (talk) 01:17, 16 September 2020 (UTC)[]
    • I my opinion the name does not necessarily have to be related to the technical aspect of the system. As for the pronounciation it could be why-Kee-keh. As a non-native English speaker it is difficult to associate wikike with any form of slurs, even after searching the Internet. This much be a marginal or subcultural slur or spelt in a different way (Waikiki, a Honolulu neighborhood, is the closest match I could find). I would say the apostrophe should not be there as it does not work in a URL. The dash could also be removed. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 07:09, 16 September 2020 (UTC)[]

  • I kinda like the name (maybe "RosettaWiki" would be even better). It probably doesn't meet the desideratum of The name should not restrict the wiki only towards the goal of the Abstract Wikipedia or be only about natural language and content abstraction, but should reflect the potential that the functions may be used in a large diversity of ways and places., but I don't know how important that is.

  • As this will be a Wiki of functions and not a Wiki of translations, this is not a name explaining what it is. Though Abstract Wikipedia is at least one of the main goals, afaIk it is not the only application of the functions. --CamelCaseNick (talk) 18:05, 16 September 2020 (UTC)[]

Project Aquinas

Voting

Discussion

  • more a play on words on the term "knowledge acquisition" than the philosopher Thomas of Aquinas
  • I don't know much about Catholic theology, but is there any connection between Aquinas and "knowledge acquisition" other than his surname kinda looking like the word "acquisition" if you squint? I guess his Five Ways are about acquiring knowledge of God, or something, but that seems like a stretch. Regardless, using a specific religious figure is probably a no-go for something intended to be cross-cultural. (Would Muslims and Hindus be okay with the name?)

  • This name does not indicate it is a wiki.--GZWDer (talk) 04:08, 16 September 2020 (UTC)[]
  • Not bad, although somewhat Western-centric and doesn't make the functionality obvious. The problem with the lack of "wiki" can be addressed by calling it WikiAquinas. It can be easily translated to Russian and Hebrew, although there will be a lot of K and W sounds in "Wikiaquinas": "qui" is actually pronounced as "kwi", which is very close to "wiki", so it can be a bit of a drag to write and say aloud in some languages. --Amir E.

  • Direct and to the point. "Function" is a technical word that not everyone will understand, but the project itself is not intended for direct layperson consumption anyway, so not a big deal. Maybe "FunctionWiki" would sound better. PiRSquared17 (talk) 01:45, 16 September 2020 (UTC)[]

    I also agree that this is too broad in scope (according to the description above that would encompass also the long-term goal and all existing wikis, or that it could bring a confusion: "Wikimedia" is already the dedicated name for this "universe".
    The concept is not to generate everything, but just being allowed to generate some contents that could be brought to existing wikis, at least to create much better articles than very poor "stubs" (also frequently partly translated or with frequent problems of presentation, navigatibility, usability, accessibility: the need is evident from small and medium wikis that have a very slow and complex startup, even after the initial test in Incubator
    We've all seen problems caused by the fact that these small wikis could not easily be sourced reliably while being able to source at least interesting features, which would be immediately usable by natives
    This would greatly help their understanding and then improve that content and adapt it to their culture and current local communities of interest and even help develop their interest in many topics for which they have no clue or that find them to difficult to start with, while also benefiting of the experience gained in other languages, and even allowing mutual cooperation for administering these wikis, possibly even in talk pages to create more buinds between communities that have difficulties to talk each other and understand a sufficient common language). It would also allow easier cooperation across wikis to find more experienced admins to solve complex issues (notably those related to NPOV, and respect of peoples, while also setting a better limit to avoid conflicts of interests by the few experienced users that can decide against more the legitimate needs of modest contributors so that everyone can find a suitable space of work and cooperation also with their own sets of cultural interests). but even this larger goal can describe what could be Wikipedia abstract later, which will still be a part of our existing "Wikimedia" universe. clearly the goal for now is jsut being allwoed to compose several sources to generate modest contents (probably not more than a simple sentence or just a single phrase, such as to help build a navigatable structure, or sets of nav templates, or an index of topics, a reliable set of categories and all the necessary and suitable interwiki links, or a set of disambiguation pages appropriate for each language but still pointing to relevant stubs pages to be later completed; for this reason the initial pags would be bot-generated but still editable: we've seen that method used effectively in a rare language, notably Waray-Waray, except that this is made by a bot controlled by just a single user and it is not so open; instead of posting "stubs pages" the stubs could use templates with their content fed and basic presentation from functions but still in a form correct for the target language; but the Waray-Wray wiki is now usable by its community which now update it with less efforts but still with all the set of links to other more populated wikis and more possible sources in various languages). This could also be used to greatly accelerate the development of Wiktionnary (with basic definitions for some meanings/lemmas, while the local community would add their own language-specific expressions, or could find examples of use and citations in their culture to support each lemma; as well they could benefit from data-driven generated contents such as conjugations, declensions, transliterations, usable input methods; in Wikipedia thee data in Wikitionanry could have a Wikitionnary-based spellchecker, and we could create out own automatic translartos with smarter intelligence to help others understanding what is happening in the small wiki where problems are reported by very few users but difficult to assert). verdy_p (talk) 23:11, 18 September 2020 (UTC)[]

  • I also agree that the prefix "holo" has no direct relation to nazi's Holocaust. It is related to the English term "holy" (saint/spirit); "holocaust" is a composed as a name created after the genocide to describe it as a mass murdering/attack ("caust", related to "caustic") based on spirituality/religion ("holo"). And this is not proposing the use of "caust".
    Yes the proposal is highly related to "holomorphic functions" ("holo" because the space where the transform is not defined is very thin, almost invisible/transparent, insignificant, infinitesimal, compared to the space where it has a defined meaning, so it is difficult to observe and it just exists as a "spirit"; you can like it as well to "hologram" where this transparent space is diffused/spread "everywhere" but you don't see anything if you try to locate a point where this occurs; it also applies to "fractal spaces" and "fractal dimensions", i.e. non-integer dimensions that smoothly link spaces with countable finite dimensions), but it's too much technical for people not aware in advanced mathematics (and that also have difficulties to understand the base concept of "morphism", which actually means a transform by a regulated relation between different entities so that some properties are preserved by the transform, and which sometimes an produce no result or multiple results, possibly with uncertainty margins, i.e. just probabilistic or fuzzy results for which no universal decision can be concluded). Note that "morphism" is based on the greek radical "morph" (used also on Slavic languages) which just translates to the "form" radical in Latin (and most Italic or Germanic languages).
    But Greek terms in Italic/Germanic languages are considered too much scientific terminology. If we reduce "homomorphism" just to "holo" (which is also used on scientific terms based on Greek), we loose the important "form"/"morph" meaning that this feature better describes ("holo" is not a requirement), that's why I would not use it in "holopedia" which would be better used to describe a wiki-based encyclopedia about religions/spirituaty... I would largely prefer some variation based on the term "mutate" (change of form/morph, i.e. "transform"). verdy_p (talk) 14:26, 16 September 2020 (UTC)[]

      • You suppose badly. see w:en:Holomorphic function which is also mostly the same as "holomorphism", but don't confuse it with "homomorphism" which exists too (not all homomorphism are homoporphisms, this remark applies also to the reverse; however all holomorphic functions are holomorphisms, the reverse being false). Yes it is a too technical term for what would in fine would be a repository of code to transform a set of data from any types to another set of data, plus some design feature to describe them like an API, and implement them with some guided processing model matching the described API. For Abstract Wikipedia only the output would be limited to some wikitext that is embeddable in some page, a sort of "supertemplate", except that its input would not limited to just text, and its implementation not limited to be using the wiki syntax or a Lua module and the output is still transformable. The above functions could take the whole existing database of some wiki or external source in input, so the functions are just like "bricks" you can combine in a graph-like structure and it may also have timing constraints and synchronization points I can think these "functions" like an extensible API offering a set of objects with accessors or methods but working as standalone modules and insatiable many times with their own internal state, much like a javascript or Lua "object" (that you can duplicate with a "new" to copy its internal state), and in fact the "functions" describes above are most like "morphisms" rather than true "functions" in the strict mathematical meaning.verdy_p (talk) 01:00, 19 September 2020 (UTC)[]

  • I get why the Z is there, but it still looks weird. Maybe InfoWiki would be better, although that's probably taken already. In any case, the name doesn't really convey a sense of functions/transformations/translations IMO, and maybe would be better suited to Abstract Wikipedia than to Wikilambda.

    • Isn't a function sothing where you give some input and the function will return a response with some output? If there's no input, there's no output; if there's input but no output, it's just a blackhole that has no use... The description above seems to indicate that the "'function" will have some intelligence, look like an "artificial brain" (possibly using IA technologies, or BigData collection and aggregation to produce something else in various forms, not just translating the input?). verdy_p (talk) 00:24, 16 September 2020 (UTC)[]
      • If you're meaning "artificial intelligence" by "IA", I'm unsure this will be used at all (there is enough of that already), and it certainly will not be the only aspect of the project.

      • Similar to wikiquest: two necessary parts of the same thing. The initial description is too much centered to functions described in mathematical terms. But clearly the goal is not mathematical "functions": there's not necessary any valid output and there can be output without any input of custom data. The goal is too abstract to be usable, when in fact it will not be that but will ba a shared reusable library that will extend the API and that will also be largely independent of the language used (not just Lua modules, or Javascripts, or a set of extensions to Mediawiki API, or Mediawi hooks abut any mix of them and using also the potential of data already inside Wikimedia projects (pedias, dictionnaries, data, commons media) and related support projects (Phabricator, GitHub or other open source code repositories and open data repositories, and external open APIs based on web services or file sharing protocols and communication tools: social medias, RSS, mailing lists...). Each described "function" may be in fact composed of multiple components workign together. The result/output may also be variable over time, evolutive. And translated if possible (both in the questions or the replies and in input forms that could be used, where the input form will also be part of the function and will have various forms bving the result of another function generating it). These results may also be evaluated (with some automated metrics or from user's notation in order to qualify or order them under various criteria). verdy_p (talk) 18:10, 18 September 2020 (UTC)[]

  • I actually thought about this one also last night before falling asleep!, the entire REPL as a flow, which we definitely will have and currently do! REPL, in general can be thought of as overlapping workflows or just processes. R, read, is the extraction parts that will mostly be automated when the community opt-in to have pages created or maintained. But for a Wiki of Functions, that will only be the E, eval part from REPL, so maybe that's a subtle vote for WikiEval. The P, print, I would say would perhaps be renderers and I quite like that aspect of alignment. L, loop, could be thought of as the continual refinement as well as counter vandalism operations. Overall, REPL is a good way to think of the entire set of workflows or processes that generates knowledge and would probably be a great way to document as an example of those very new to Wikidata/Wikipedia and wondering/hearing about how the "Wiki of Functions" fits into the whole picture. --Thadguidry (talk) 22:14, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[]
