Grants talk:IEG/StrepHit: Wikidata Statements Validation via References/Midpoint
Thank you for submitting this thorough midpoint report. I'm accepting the report now, with the following comments recorded from our phone meeting with Leila Zia:
- Hearty congratulations on your outstanding progress on this project. You've achieved significant outputs--including the large corpus you've gathered! Strong work!
- Recording Leila's suggestion here that you may want to have a conversation to explore ingesting part of your data into Wikidata without going through the primary source tool. For statements which have high accuracy (like 99% performance), it may be worthwhile to avoid going into backlog. You might ask the community for some hand-coding of a subset of data you want to ingest, and if confidence is high and performance is high, go with the bot. Otherwise, a big concern for your project will be how to attract new users to the primary sources tool.
- If you run into statements that are not working, it would be good to report on a sample of them and share your insights about why you think they are not working. You don’t have to address them within the scope of this project, but if so, talk about how you are improving the model for them. It's good to see what is the worst case scenario when it is not working.
- You've been very effective in your engagement--reaching out, collecting feedback, staying connected to community and creating great documentation. Glad to see your commitment to an open, collaborative approach.
I'm very much looking forward to seeing the outcomes of this project in your Final Report!
Our grants administrator, Janice Tud, will be in touch with you regarding your next disbursement.
