This month's presentation:
*The State of the Article Expansion Recommendation System*
By Leila Zia
Only 1% of English Wikipedia articles are labeled with quality class Good
or better, and 37% of the articles are stubs. We are building an article
expansion recommendation system to change this in Wikipedia, across many
languages. In this presentation, I will talk with you about our current
thinking of the vision and direction of the research that can help us build
such a recommendation system, and share more about one specific area of
research we have heavily focused on in the past months: building a
recommendation system that can help editors identify what sections to add
to an already existing article. I present some of the challenges we faced,
the methods we devised or used to overcome them, and the result of the
first line of experiments on the quality of such recommendations (teaser:
the results are really promising. The precision and recall at 10 is 80%.)
