Tech NewsEdit

I expanded on your item in Tech/News/2020/50. Would appreciate if you had time to sanity check it and make sure it looks OK. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 17:50, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

Lingualibre and Wikidata lexeme communitiesEdit

 
Please open this draft image to get the general idea. `P2356` is just a place holder

Hello Lea. Following the 18 months departure of 0x010C we recently took back control over all LinguaLibre repositories. Workload is now spread among 2~3 volunteers and the new WM-fr server sysop. We are now engaged in code fix, code refactoring, setting up answers to past bottlenecks. We start wondering what is our medium and long term vision for Lingualibre and what are the associated technological challenges to overcome.

LinguaLibre and Wikidata Lexeme

One axis is Wikidata and Wikidata Lexemes contribution, as well as Sparql. We want to increase our community capability on these fields, so we created the following draft :

Referents and contributors

User:Vigneron (Sparql), User:Poslovitch (bot) and myself (coordination) are leading this effort. But we are now at a maturity level where we will need within weeks to post a « call for contributors » within the Wikidata, Wikidata bots, and Wikidata Lexeme communities.

How the wikidata community could help ?

The easiest way to help is to join us, help us edit the pages cited above (we mainly have no knowledge in these field!), explore our LinguaLibre resources and data structure (about 30 properties only), and start a reflexion on how to mine Lingualibre resources for Wikidata.

Lexeme data model with hook ids

To kick start this, I though of a variation of your Lexeme_data_model svg. Your image is plain english. Is there some properties P or element Q to add to that image ? My low understanding on wikidata & lexeme I'am may be misleading, but I look for a way to quickly quickstart bot developers, so they immediately have a cartography of P hooks onto which we can send API GET and POST queries to get or edit values. Is that a thing or am I mixing things ups ?

Salut @Yug:, I'm glad to have news from you and I'm happy to see that things are moving towards an even better collaboration between Lingua Libre and Wikidata :)
I think a first step would be to communicate more about LiLi to the Wikidata community, to let them know how they can help. Another step would be to improve the general documentation about Lexemes on Wikidata, that is not in a good shape, and improvements could benefit both the Wikidata/Lexeme community, and the Lingua Libre community.
A good example is the visual that you mentioned: I created it a while ago, before the Lexeme extension was even deployed on Wikidata. Its goal was to explain how Lexemes would work and how the community could structure the data around it: the properties mentioned there were only suggestions, and people have been doing slightly different things (eg "refers to concept" has been name "item for this sense", etc.). So I think that this document should be completely reworked to represent the actual state of how Lexemes are modeled on Wikidata.
I would be very happy to help you with anything related to communication, community involvement and events (I'm wondering if some kind of documentation sprint/hackathon would be feasible to bring all of the interested volunteers together). What do you think? Would you like to have a call someday to discuss ideas further? Feel free to reach out at lea.lacroix on wikimedia german or on Telegram @Auregann.

Hi :D. I will likely send a gentle ping on Wikidata main village pump ? Very light for now. I can simply announce the 400,000th audio recording and a gentle reminder that we are using wikibase as well. The real call can be sent in few weeks, when our current code refreshing phase ends and we are rested and ready to welcome new folks.
Lexeme_data_model.svg rework: any idea who who could do this update smoothly ? Who knows all the right terms or where to find those exact terms ? PS: I tagged the Commons file with a request to update it.
Wikidata Lexeme documentation needs a kind of task force, yes. Some uses cases as well. A Wikidata hackathon for documentation would help, sure, but I don't know this community enough to estimate the workload vs final gain, not the people to contact. The only wikidata folks I know of are VIGNERON, Lydia, Harmonia and yourself.
Light info : on the events front, the pandemic caused our French microfi to be underused. With 5 months left we requested some rule changes (opening), so we can hold few recording events and use those parts of these available funds. On the personal front, I'am ending a 2 months sprint on Lili and its github, so I can discuss lightly about future plans but I can't be fully onboard in coming weeks.

About communication channels: I suggest you also add a message on this talk page and on the Lexicographical data Telegram channel.
For the rest, let's have a call to talk about what we could do together :) Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talk) 12:35, 22 February 2021 (UTC)
