  • ​Can computer science help light up the world with knowledge?
    article for people on this island country explaining how El Niño may influence rainfall which in turn affects agriculture and flooding As university researchers we look for projects with real world impact said Jure Leskovec an assistant professor of computer science at Stanford What could have more impact than democratizing access to knowledge Wikimedia Foundation research scientists Ellery Wulczyn and Leila Zia and Stanford graduate student Robert West rounded out the team of collaborators who will report on their efforts this week at the International World Wide Web Conference in Montreal Wikipedia has huge amounts of data about articles in different languages and the relationships between them said West a doctoral candidate in computer science Our goal was to use that data to design a system to encourage editors to create the most important missing articles The researchers began by creating lists of every article in each language and then cross referencing these lists to determine which articles were missing in which languages The researchers then estimated the importance of each missing article based on cultural and geographic relevance The idea was to rank the value of creating any given article missing in that language relative to all the other missing articles We had to create a system of rankings that would be meaningful to editors in different cultural and linguistic communities because Wikipedia is shaped by the editors choices Zia said The researchers hypothesized that a system that accurately predicted the popularity of missing articles would appeal to editors by suggesting where their voluntary efforts would deliver the most value to their linguistic communities and presumably afford them the greatest personal satisfaction To test this premise the researchers designed a complex experiment They began with the 4 9 million articles that then existed in English Wikipedia and found those
