Re: [Wikimedia-l] Update on Discovery Projects

the value
then, from the machine learning model's point of view, comes from getting
the top 3 to 5 results in the best possible order. There's not a lot of
value in pushing down any particular result much farther than that. For a
single word query like "rent", title matches are the best. There are only
138 results for intitle:rent, vs over 44K for just rent—however, the first
page of results for both is the same.

We are interested in use cases other than searchers who are looking for a
particular article or particular information, though that tends to
predominate. Editors might want to find all the articles with a particular
word (e.g., a misspelling) and no result would be excluded by the machine
learning model, just possibly ranked lower.

Hope that helps,
—Trey

Hi James,

Does maps also include other rich content like graphs, charts, heat maps
> and other forms of data visualization?


​In reference to your question above, have you had a chance to read through
the email that was sent yesterday, in regards to the Discovery team? [1] We
discussed maps and graphs in that email, but not things like heat maps or
other data visualizations as those are not a part of Discovery's current
annual goals.

Cheers,

[Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] Update on Discovery Projects

2017-06-14 Thread Deborah Tankersley
Hi everybody,

You may have seen the recent communication [1
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Engineering/June_2017_changes>]
about the product and tech tune-up which went live the week of June 5th,
2017. In that communication, we promised an update on the future of
Discovery projects and we will talk about those in this email.

The Discovery team structure has now changed, but the new teams will still
work together to complete the goals as listed in the draft annual plan.[2]
A summary of their anticipated work, as we finalize these changes, is
below. We plan on doing a check-in at the end of the calendar year to see
how our goals are progressing with the new smaller and separated team
structure.

Here is a list of the various projects under the Discovery umbrella, along
with the goals that they will be working on:

Search Backend

Improve search capabilities:

   -

   Implement ‘learning to rank’ [3] and other advanced machine learning
   methodologies
   -

   Improve support for languages using new analyzers
   -

   Maintain and expand power user search functionality

Search Frontend

Improve user interface of the search results page with new functionality:

   -

   Implement explore similar [4]
   
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Cross-wiki_Search_Result_Improvements/Testing#A.2FB_test:_Add_.27explore_similar.27_pages_and_categories_for_search_results>
   -

   Update the completion suggester box [5]
   <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:CirrusSearch/CompletionSuggester>
   -

   Investigate the usage of a Wiktionary widget for English Wikipedia [6]

Wikidata Query Service

Expand and scale:

   -

   Improve ability to support power features on-wiki for readers
   -

   Improve full text search functionality
   -

   Implement SPARQL federation support

Portal

Create and implement automated language statistics and translation updates
for Wikipedia.org

Analysis

Provide in-depth analytics support:

   -

   Perform experimental design, data collection, and data analysis
   -

   Perform ad-hoc analyses of Discovery-domain data
   -

   Maintain and augment the Discovery Dashboards,[7] which allow the teams
   to track their KPIs and other metrics

Maps

Map support:

   -

   Implement new map style
   -

   Increase frequency of OSM data replication
   -

   As needed, assist with individual language Wikipedia’s implementation of
   mapframe [8] <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Maps/how_to:_embedded_maps>

Note: There is a possibility that we can do more with maps in the coming
year; we are currently evaluating strategic, partnership, and resourcing
options.

Structured Data on Commons

Extend structured data search on Commons, as part of the structured data
grant [9] via:

   -

   Research and implement advanced search capabilities
   -

   Implement new elements, filters, relationships

Graphs and Tabular Data on Commons

We will be re-evaluating this functionality against other Commons
initiatives such as the structured data grant. As with maps, we will
provide updates when we know more.

We are still working out all the details with the new team structure and
there might be some turbulence; let us know if there are any concerns and
we will do our best to answer them.

tl;dr: Search continues to expand functionality by displaying more
information on the search results page

Ever started searching for something on Wikipedia and wondered—*really*, is
that all that there is? Does it feel like you’re somehow playing hide and
seek with all the knowledge that’s out there? And...wouldn’t it be great to
see articles or categories that are similar to your search query and maybe
some related images or links to other languages in which to read that
article? Or, maybe you just want to read and contribute to projects other
than Wikipedia but need a jump start with a few short summaries from sister
projects.
The Discovery Search team has been testing out some really cool new
features that will enable some fun and fascinating clicking—down the rabbit
hole of Wikipedia.[1] But first, let’s recap what we’ve been doing recently.

We've been doing tons of work creating, updating, and finessing the search
back end to enhance search queries. There have been many complex things
that have happened, things like: adding ascii-folding and stemming,
detecting when a visitor might be typing in a language that is different
 than the Wikipedia that they are on, switching from tf-idf to BM25,
dropping trailing question marks, and updating to ElasticSearch version 5.
[2][3][4][5][6][7] Whew!

We have much more planned in the coming months—machine learning with
‘learning to rank’, investigating and deploying new language analyzers,
and, after exhaustive analysis, removing quotes within queries by
default.[8][9][10][11] We’ll also be working closely with the new
Structured Data team in their brand new work on Commons.[12][13]

We also want to improve the part that our readers and editors interface
with: the search results page! We started brainstorming during the late
summer of 2016 on what we could do to make search results better—to easily
find interesting, relevant content and to create a more intuitive viewing
experience.[14] We designed and refined numerous ideas on how to improve
the search results page and received lots of good feedback from the
community.[15]

Empowered by the feedback, we began testing starting with a display of
results from the Wikimedia sister projects next to the regular search
results.[16] The idea for this test was to enable discovery into other
projects—projects that our visitors might not have known about—by
displaying interesting results in small snippets. The sidebar display of
the sister projects borrows from a similar feature in use on the Italian,
Catalan and French Wikipedias. We've run two A/B tests on the sister
project search results with detailed analysis and, after a bit of final
touches to the code, we will release the new functionality into production
on all Wikipedias near the end of April 2017.

Our next A/B test will be to add additional information and related results
for each search query. This will be in the form of an ‘explore similar’
link that, when someone interacts with the link, an expanded display will
appear with related pages, categories and links to the article in other
languages—all of which might lead to further knowledge discovery.[17] We
know that not every search query will return exactly what folks were
looking for, but we feel that adding links to similar, but related
information would be helpful and, possibly, super interesting!

We also plan on doing a few more A/B tests in the coming year:
* Test a new display that will show the pronunciation of a word with its
definition and part of speech—all from existing data in Wiktionary.
Initially this will be in English only.
* Test placing a small image (from the article) next to each search result
that is displayed on the page.
* Test an additional future using a new auto completion metadata display in
the search box that is located on the top right of most pages in Wikipedia,
similar to what happens on the Wikipedia.org portal.[18]

For the more technical minded, there is a way to test out these new
features in your own browser. To display the sister project search results,
it will require a bit of URL manipulation; but for the explore similar and
Wiktionary widget, you can modify your common.js file to test an early
version of the features. Detailed information is available on
MediaWiki.org.[19]

Once the testing, analysis and feedback cycle is done for each new feature,
we’d like to slowly implement them into production on all Wikipedias
throughout the rest of the year. We’re really hoping that these
enhancements to how search works will further the usefulness of search and
make our readers and editors more productive.

Cheers from the Discovery Search team!

Hi Gerard,

I chatted with Trey (who did the analysis) for his opinion on your
concerns. Here is his response:

I wasn't trying to pass judgement on notability when the search referred to

I hope that helps to further explain what we found and why we're not acting
further on this issue at this time.

I decided to look into this as my 10% project last week. It ended up being
a 15% project, but I wanted to finish it up.

I carefully reviewed and categorized the top 100 "unsuccessful" (i.e.,
zero-results) queries from May 2016, and skimmed the top 1,000 from May,
and skimmed and compared the top 100 / 1,000 for June.

The top result (with several variants in the top 100) is a porn site that
has had a wiki page created and deleted several times. Various websites
round out the top 10. Internet personalities and websites dominate the top
100 and several have had pages created and deleted over the years. There's
strong evidence of links being used for some queries—though I didn't try to
track them down. There's plenty of personally identifiable information in
the top 1000 most frequent queries. More than 10% of the queries (by
volume) get good results from the completion suggester or "did you mean"
spelling suggestions, and more than 10% have some results approximately two
months later (i.e., late last week).

Obvious refinements to the search strategy would eliminate so many
high-frequency queries that any useful mining would be down to slogging
through the low-impact long tail.

I don’t think there’s a lot here worth extracting, though others may
disagree. The privacy concerns expressed earlier are genuine, and simple
attempts to filter PII (using patterns, minimum IP counts, etc) are not
guaranteed to be effective.

For lots more details (but no actual queries), see here:

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikipedia.org portal page update!

2016-03-15 Thread Deborah Tankersley
Hi Sam,

We're glad you're using the Portal page more than usual and we hope that
with upcoming future enhancements, you'll continue to enjoy it!

For your first question - we are currently focusing on the wikipedia.org
portal page at this time. We have no immediate plans to update the
individual wiki's with this code but that doesn't mean that anyone in the
community can't use our code to update another wiki to use the meta data
and images as we did, in the search results.

For your second question, we actually have a ticket
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T129627> open to look for input exactly
like that. When a user types in a few words that are not in the language
that has been previously selected, we're hoping to be able to switch to
that "new" language on the fly. I agree that it'll be a very neat feature
for us to have on the portal!

Thanks for your input!

Cheers,

Deb

2016-03-15 Thread Deborah Tankersley
Hello,

We disabled this small feature on the wikipedia.org portal page because it
essentially didn't work; due to a bug in the API that it uses. We
documented it here: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T126409 and on the
Portal Improvements page:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia.org_Portal_Improvements#Minor_updates_to_the_Portal_page
.

Hi David,

Thanks for the kind comments!

> It looks great, well done.


I've created a phabricator ticket
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T129748> for this comment:

I've also updated this ticket <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T129696>
with your screen shot:

I believe the license (and other icons that we don't display on the page)
are meant for browsers, app, etc that look for that type of information if
their site requires uses of it's display.

As for future work of this nature being completed on the wikimedia.org
portal site, that's TBD at this point. I'd like to investigate how much
traffic actually goes to that portal page (ticket
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T129750>).

Also - there is no set order of the sister project links at the bottom of
the page as far as aligning with other wiki pages listing the sister
projects.

Thanks again!

Cheers,

Deb

[Wikimedia-l] Wikipedia.org portal page update!

2016-03-11 Thread Deborah Tankersley
Hello!

I'm very pleased to announce that we've updated the Wikipedia.org
 portal page with a brand new search box that is
more prominent and will now display meta data with images (as available) in
the search results (see attached image).

This was a large effort by the Discovery Portal team to develop a
JavaScript-only version of the language picker, so that JavaScript enabled
browsers will see all the new meta data. Alongside that effort, we also
ensured that in JavaScript (JS) disabled browsers (or older Internet
Explorer versions), our visitors won't have a bad experience when choosing
a language to search in. (Note: in older IE versions and JS disabled
browsers, the type-ahead and meta data search results information will not
be displayed.)

We also implemented a shorter language code (ie: EN for English, ES for
Spanish, etc) to allow for more characters to be typed into the search box.
When a user toggles the language selector, the full language name will be
displayed in the dropdown for easy finding of the language you prefer to
search in. For the more technical minded - I've attached a screenshot of
one of the ways we test our code, visually.

We're interested in hearing your feedback or if you have any questions!

On behalf of the very happy Wikipedia.org Portal Team,

Deb

[Wikimedia-l] Portal Improvements wiki page update

2016-02-15 Thread Deborah Tankersley
Hi all,

I've made multiple updates of text, images, ideas and more on the Wikipedia.org
portal improvements

page
on Meta, go check it out!

The page now displays what the Discovery Portal team has been working on this
quarter
:
what
minor improvements to the site that we've released into production and the
items we have coming up next. I've also updated the A/B test mocks

and
descriptions for clarity into our testing process.

Please let us know if there are any questions or concerns!

PS: I'm resending this email out to add the Wikitech-ambassadors email
list. :)


Cheers,

Deb
