Hi Everyone, The next Research Showcase will be live-streamed this Wednesday, April 19, 2017 at 11:30 AM (PST) 18:30 UTC.
YouTube stream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Prf0Vb-k1I As usual, you can join the conversation on IRC at #wikimedia-research. And, you can watch our past research showcases here <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Research/Showcase#April_2017>. This month's presentations: Using WikiBrain to visualize Wikipedia's neighborhoodsBy *Dr. Shilad Sen <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Shilad>*While Wikipedia serves as the world's most widely reference for humans, it also represents the most widely use body of knowledge for algorithms that must reason about the world. I will provide an overview of WikiBrain, a software project that serves as a platform for Wikipedia-based algorithms. I will also demo a brand new system built on WikiBrain that visualizes any dataset as a topographic map whose neighborhoods correspond to related Wikipedia articles. I hope to get feedback about which directions for these tools are most useful to the Wikipedia research community. -- Sarah R.
