This is part of the development plan for Abstract Wikipedia.
Continues from name of the wiki of functions.

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

Primary goals[edit]

  • 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[edit]

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 (or repository) of functions in a new dedicated wiki.
  • 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.
