Project Summary[edit]


We would analyse the relations between the Wikipedia pages graph and users' search and then try to make predictions that could be used as suggestions if relevant


This is a class based project. I don't think there is any requirement to keep results/code private and if so we would share what is of interest. If results are of particular importance, we might publish a paper.

Benefits for the Wikimedia community[edit]

If results are good, this would let the Wikipedia fondation have a better understanding of the way people look for knowledge. It could also enhance users experience if relevant recommendations were made to them.


We would like to start working on this as shortly as possible. This is a project for a Machine Learning class me and Kevin are taking at MIT. The project would end in mid December.
