  • Abstract WikipediaWe are building a new programming system, Wikifunctions, where a community will be able to write code functions in a multilingual way with multiple programming languages (Python and JavaScript to start). This will be a production-grade function-as-a-service platform for Wikimedia volunteers to utilize as we work toward the larger initiative of symbolically generating natural language in all of Wikimedia’s supported languages for Wikipedia with use of Wikidata Lexemes and Wiki functions entries.
  • Campaigns: Our vibrant global network of Wikimedia organizers run content campaigns such as Wiki Loves Monuments, Art + Feminism, Wiki Loves Human Rights, and Wikimedia Asian Month that focus on new and experienced contributors, and are a key mechanism of content development on Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata, and other Wikimedia projects. Our work aims to improve the experience for campaign organizers and campaign participants, so they can more effectively take part in the Wikimedia movement.
  • Structured Data: We are building user experiences and platform capabilities to connect structured data to Wikimedia content so that it is easier for both humans and machines to identify, classify, discover, and enhance. Through the application of linked data we aim to make it possible to create richer experiences piecing together the content across multiple sources such as Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, and Wikidata.
