सार विकिपीडिया

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
This page is a translated version of the page Abstract Wikipedia and the translation is 12% complete.


इस परियोजना के दो भाग हैं: सार विकिपीडिया और विकीफंक्शन।

सार विकिपीडिया का लक्ष्य अधिक लोगों को अधिक भाषाओं में अधिक ज्ञान साझा करने देना है। सार विकिपीडिया विकिडाटा का वैचारिक विस्तार है।[1] अमूर्त विकिपीडिया में, लोग भाषा-स्वतंत्र तरीके से विकिपीडिया लेख बना और रख सकते हैं। एक विशेष भाषा विकिपीडिया इस भाषा-स्वतंत्र लेख का अपनी भाषा में अनुवाद कर सकता है। कोड अनुवाद करता है।

विकिफंक्शन एक नया विकिमीडिया प्रोजेक्ट है जो किसी को भी कोड बनाने और बनाए रखने की अनुमति देता है। यह कई तरह से उपयोगी है। यह सभी प्रकार के कार्यों की एक सूची प्रदान करता है जिसे कोई भी कॉल कर सकता है, लिख सकता है, बनाए रख सकता है, और उपयोग करें। यह कोड भी प्रदान करता है जो सार विकिपीडिया से भाषा-स्वतंत्र लेख को विकिपीडिया की भाषा में अनुवादित करता है। इससे हर कोई अपनी भाषा में लेख पढ़ सकता है। विकिफंक्शन विकिडेटा से शब्दों और संस्थाओं के बारे में ज्ञान का उपयोग करेगा।

यह हमें एक ऐसी दुनिया के करीब ले जाएगा जहां हर कोई सभी ज्ञान के योग में साझा कर सकता है।

फंक्शन क्या है?

A "function" is a sequence of computer program instructions that makes a calculation based on data you provide. Functions are a form of knowledge that can answer questions, such as how many days have passed between two dates or the distance between two cities. More complicated functions can answer more complicated questions, such as the volume of a three dimensional shape, the distance between Mars and Venus on a certain date, or whether two species were alive at the same time. We already use functions in many types of knowledge inquiries, such as asking a question to a search engine. The templates known as {{convert}} and {{age}} in English are also examples of functionalities that are already used in many Wikipedias, written in wikitext and Lua and manually copied to each wiki where it's wanted.

More examples of functions are at Early function examples, and very rough sketches of how the interface might look are at Early mockups.

In short, functions make a calculation on the data you provide, and answer a question you have about it.

This new Wikimedia project will build a library of functions, written by volunteers, to help answer questions like these across languages. By building out our library of functions, we can enable more people to access and explore free knowledge in new ways.

What is Abstract Wikipedia?

A visual explanation of the Abstract Wikipedia project and Wikifunctions

The term “Abstract Wikipedia” itself refers to the long-term goal – that this library of functions will someday enable the creation of language-independent articles. Once more pieces of this project are in place, this will mean that any wiki – especially small to medium wikis – will be able to dramatically increase the number of articles available in their language. It also means that editors can share knowledge from their culture and contexts with a larger and more global audience.

The new wiki of functions, Wikifunctions, will develop the coding infrastructure to make this vision possible. The Abstract Wikipedia part of the project has started with our shared work on natural language generation functions, such as morphological functions.

In other words: we will be able to combine the functions from the new wiki, with the data and linguistic-information in Wikidata, in order to generate natural language sentences in any supported languages. These sentences can then be used by any Wikipedia (or elsewhere).

An article in the Signpost provides a more detailed introduction to the idea. The material below – research papers, videos of talks, prototype software – offers a lot of detail. A detailed draft plan for the development of Abstract Wikipedia is also available.

See the Historic proposal page for the long list of related discussions, papers, videos, and comparable proposals.

Originally, the project was code-named Wikilambda, derived from Lambda calculus. The name is still referenced in the name of Extension:WikiLambda and in the Wikifunctions logo which contains a lambda character.
