This is part of the Wikilambda development plan.
Continues from Wikilambda name.

The project has ambitious primary and a whole set of secondary goals. The primary goals are:

  • Allowing more people to read more content in the language they choose
  • Allowing more people to contribute content for more readers, and thus increasing the reach of underrepresented contributors

Secondary goals include, but are not limited to:

  • Reusable and well-tested natural language generation
  • Allowing other Wikimedia communities and external parties to create content in more languages
  • Improving communication and knowledge accessibility well beyond the Wikipedia projects
  • Develop a novel, much more comprehensive approach to knowledge representation
  • Develop a novel approach to represent the result of natural language understanding
  • A library of functions
  • Allowing to develop and share functions in the user’s native languages, instead of requiring them to learn English first
  • Allowing everyone to share in functions and to run them
  • Introducing a new form of knowledge asset for a Wikimedia project to manage
  • Introducing novel components to Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects that allow for interactive features
  • Create functions working on top of Wikidata’s knowledge base, thus adding inference to increase the coverage of Wikidata data considerably
  • Catalyzing research and development in democratizing coding interfaces
  • Enabling scientists and analysts to share and work on models collaboratively
  • Share specifications and tests for functions
  • The possibility to refer to semantics of functions through well-defined identifiers
  • Faster development of new programming languages due to accessing a wider standard library of functions in Wikilambda
  • Defining algorithm and approaches for standards and technique descriptions
  • Providing access to powerful functions to be integrated in novel machine learning systems

The list is not exhaustive.
