Updating WikiProject Medicine article assessments[edit]

Recent work in article quality assessment detection[1][2] can enable us to automatically identify which articles are most due to be re-assessed. Let's apply this method to WikiProject Medicine's stubs.

Smithsonian American Art Museum edit-a-thon[edit]

Our hand-assessed article ratings are looking quite stale. You may be skeptical of whether a machine learning algorithm can do a decent job of properly assessing articles. However, in just two weeks of experimenting with ORES, it seems to be far more preferable than putting stock in stub/start/C human-assessed ratings that may be months or years old. --Andrew Lih
