Project PlanEdit


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. What will you and other organizers spend your time doing?

The quality of information on Wikipedia may vary depending on the topic and the language version. If we learn how to automatically determine the the best language version of the particular article (or even part of the article), it can simplify the task of enriching less developed language editions of the Wikipedia. During the presentation, measures that can be extracted from Wikipedia's articles for the automatic evaluation of content quality in different languages will be briefly presented. These measures can be relevant to various quality dimensions, such as completeness, reliability, up-to-dateness, readability and others. In addition, measures for assessing the data quality in the infobox will be presented. Methods and sources for the extraction of measures will also be discussed briefly.
