Stanford Seminar - Research at the Service of Free Knowledge

January 31, 2020

Leila Zia Wikimedia Foundation January 24, 2020 With roughly 20 billion monthly pageviews, 10 million monthly edits, and almost 50 million articles across 300+ languages, Wikipedia has become a canonical part of the Free Knowledge ecosystem: enabling people to have access to knowledge and empowering them to participate in the discourse of gathering and sharing the sum of all human knowledge. In this presentation, I define Wikipedia's space in the free knowledge ecosystem and lay out some of the important questions the project faces as it approaches its third decade. I talk about a branch of research to understand and address Wikipedia's knowledge gaps as well as improving and defending the integrity of knowledge on Wikipedia. I close by sharing some of the open research questions and directions.
