Tell Me More: An Actionable Quality Model for Wikipedia

This presentation is part of the WikiSym + OpenSym 2013 program.

Morten Warncke-Wang, Dan Cosley and John Riedl

In this paper we address the problem of developing actionable quality models for Wikipedia, models whose features directly suggest strategies for improving the quality of a given article. We first survey the literature in order to understand the notion of article quality in the context of Wikipedia and existing approaches to automatically assessing article quality. We then develop classification models with varying combinations of more or less actionable features, and and that a model that only contains clearly actionable features delivers good results. We discuss the implications of these results in terms of how they can help improve the quality of articles across Wikipedia.
