[Wikimedia-l] Research Showcase Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 11:30 AM (PST) 18:30 UTC

Hi Everyone,

The next Research Showcase will be live-streamed this Wednesday, November
15, 2017 at 11:30 AM (PST) 18:30 UTC.

YouTube stream:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMENRAkeHnQ

As usual, you can join the conversation on IRC at #wikimedia-research. And,
you can watch our past research showcases here
.

This month's presentation:

Conversation Corpora, Emotional Robots, and Battles with BiasBy *Lucas
Dixon (Google/Jigsaw)*I'll talk about interesting experimental setups for
doing large-scale analysis of conversations in Wikipedia, and what it even
means to grapple with the concept of conversation when one is talking about
revisions on talk pages. I'll also describe challenges with having good
conversations at scale, some of the dreams one might have for AI in the
space, and I'll dig into measuring unintended bias in machine learning and
what one can do to make ML more inclusive. This talk will cover work from
the WikiDetox  project as
well as ongoing research on the nature and impact of harassment in
Wikipedia discussion spaces
 –
part of a collaboration between Jigsaw, Cornell University, and the
Wikimedia Foundation. The ML model training code, datasets, and the
supporting tooling developed as part of this project are openly available.


Many kind regards,

Sarah R. Rodlund
Senior Project Coordinator-Product & Technology, Wikimedia Foundation

Chris, we've made a number of changes to our internal processes in the
intervening months, which will hopefully allow us to complete the next
round much more expediently.

Regards,
Kirill
