Option 3: New Creation: What was one useful outcome that was created at the event for the Wikimedia movement?
Add a link to something new that was created as a result of your participation in this event (for example, you might link to a new tool that you and your co-participants worked on at the Hackathon, or to pages created in a workshop you participated in).

During the hackathon I have been working on a tool for uploading single images in the way batch uploads are done. Full explanation can be seen at commons:User:Basvb/Ideas/Single Image Batch Upload. I've been working on a specific mapping for the Dutch National Archive, I haven't yet had time to continue after the event (some deadlines finishing my study year), but am planning on continuing with it soon. Thus there is not a concrete finished product yet. I also collaborated on improving and documenting Dutch Rijksmonumenten on wikidata.


One of my goals was to find avenues to get ideas and join projects which use machine learning/Data Science to improve Wikimedia. My background is in Data Science, but I haven't really used this on Wikimedia projects too much. After the discussions on harassment I've stated my interest to help out with the Research:Detox project (mainly concerning the ml aspects). Generally I met a lot of people from all over the world and discussed a lot of interesting topics.
