Igwa nin duwang parte an proyekto na ini: Abstract Wikipedia asin Wikilambda.

An katuyuhan kan "Abstract Wikipedia" iyo an maghiras nin mga kaaraman sa mas gulpi pang lenggwahe. Ekstensiyon kan Wikidata an Abstract Wikipedia. Sa Abstract Wikipedia, an mga tawo makakahaman asin makakamantenir nin mga artikulo sa Wikipedia sa paaging language-independent. An Wikipedia sa sarong lenggwahe maipapalis sa bagong language-independent na artikulo. An code iyo an minagibo kan pagpapalis kan tataramon.[1] In Abstract Wikipedia, people can create and maintain Wikipedia articles in a language-independent way. A particular language Wikipedia can translate this language-independent article into its language. Code does the translation.

An Wikifunctions sarong Wikimedia project na nagtutugot sa paghaman asin pagmantenir nin mga code. Kapuro-pakinabang ini sa pirang mga paagi. Nagtatau inin nin catalog kan gabos na function na an dawa si isay pwede mag-call, surat, manteniron, asin paggamit. Nagtatau man ini nin language-independent na artikulo hali sa Abstract Wikipedia pasiring sa Wikipedia na igwa nin ibang lenggwahe. Sa paagi kaini mababasa kan iba an artikulo sa sainda man na lenggwahe. An Wikifunctions magamit nin mga kaaraman sa mga tataramon asin entities hali sa Wikidata.

Mas magiging marikas ining paagi sa paghihiras nin kaaraman sa kinaban kun sain gabos makakapag-ambag kan saindang kaaraman.

What is a function?

A "function" is a sequence of computer program instructions that makes a calculation based on data you provide. Functions are a form of knowledge that can answer questions, such as how many days have passed between two dates or the distance between two cities. More complicated functions can answer more complicated questions, such as the volume of a three dimensional shape, the distance between Mars and Venus on a certain date, or whether two species were alive at the same time. We already use functions in many types of knowledge inquiries, such as asking a question to a search engine. The templates known as {{convert}} and {{age}} in English are also examples of functionalities that are already used in many Wikipedias, written in wikitext and Lua and manually copied to each wiki where it's wanted.

More examples of functions are at Early function examples, and very rough sketches of how the interface might look are at Early mockups.

In short, functions make a calculation on the data you provide, and answer a question you have about it.

This new Wikimedia project will build a library of functions, written by volunteers, to help answer questions like these across languages. By building out our library of functions, we can enable more people to access and explore free knowledge in new ways.

What is Abstract Wikipedia?

A visual explanation of the Abstract Wikipedia project and Wikifunctions

The term “Abstract Wikipedia” itself refers to the long-term goal – that this library of functions will someday enable the creation of language-independent articles. Once more pieces of this project are in place, this will mean that any wiki – especially small to medium wikis – will be able to dramatically increase the number of articles available in their language. It also means that editors can share knowledge from their culture and contexts with a larger and more global audience.

The new wiki of functions, Wikifunctions, will develop the coding infrastructure to make this vision possible. The Abstract Wikipedia part of the project has started with our shared work on natural language generation functions, such as morphological functions.

In other words: we will be able to combine the functions from the new wiki, with the data and linguistic-information in Wikidata, in order to generate natural language sentences in any supported languages. These sentences can then be used by any Wikipedia (or elsewhere).




An article in the Signpost nagtatau nin mas detalyadong introduksyon para sa ideyang ini. An mga materyales sa ibaba - research papers, videos kan urulay, prototype software - nagtatau nin gulping mga detalye. Igwa nin detailed draft plan para sa pagpatalubo kan Wikilambda an pwedeng mahiling.

See the Historic proposal page for the long list of related discussions, papers, videos, and comparable proposals.

Originally, the project was code-named Wikilambda, derived from Lambda calculus. The name is still referenced in the name of Extension:WikiLambda and in the Wikifunctions logo which contains a lambda character.

  1. The new components (listed in the development plan for Abstract Wikipedia) include extensions to Wikidata, whose integration (in the second year of the project) requires the agreement of the Wikidata community before storing the “abstract content” there or on another wiki (such as the new Wikifunctions wiki developed in the first part of the project, or another multilingual wiki).
