Analysing Temporal Evolution of Interlingual Wikipedia Article Pairs

Simon Gottschalk, Elena Demidova
2016 Proceedings of the 39th International ACM SIGIR conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval - SIGIR '16  
An analysis of how the information is propagated across the Wikipedia language editions can provide important insights in the article evolution along the temporal and cultural dimensions and support quality  ...  This can lead to different points of views reflected in the articles, as well as complementary and inconsistent information.  ...  The temporal evolution of Wikipedia articles plays an important role when analysing the interlingual development of articles: For example, multilingual users actively transfer information from one language  ...

Lifecycle-Based Evolution Of Features In Collaborative Open Production Communities: The Case Of Wikipedia

Pujan Ziaie, Medin Imamovic
2013 European Conference on Information Systems  
Wikipedia is a prominent example in this area. What is of great importance in production communities is the prioritization and evolution of features with regards to the community lifecycle.  ...  In this paper, we draw on two pertinent theories in terms of the lifecycle of online communities and open collaborative communities in particular by focusing on the case of Wikipedia.  ...  In this section, we review relevant literature on community lifecycle and the evolution of features in Wikipedia.  ...

Epistemic vs Non-epistemic Criteria to Assess Wikipedia Articles: Evolution of Young People Perceptions [chapter]

Gilles Sahut, Josiane Mothe
2019 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
articles: evolution of young people perceptions.  ...  This paper tackles the problem of information credibility assessment by users, focusing on Wikipedia articles. We consider both epistemic and non-epistemic criteria.  ...  We note a similar evolution on the criterion related to the quality of sources that are cited in the Wikipedia article (See Figure 1a) .  ...

SCHEMA EVOLUTION IN WIKIPEDIA - Toward a Web Information System Benchmark
english

2008 Proceedings of the Tenth International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems   unpublished
Therefore, in this paper, we present an indepth analysis of the evolution history of the Wikipedia database and its schema; Wikipedia is the best-known example of a large family of web information systems  ...  This framework allowed us to dissect and analyze the 4.5 years of Wikipedia history, which was short in time, but intense in terms of growth and evolution.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors would like to thank Alin Deutsch for the numerous in-depth discussions on schema mapping and query rewriting.  ...

Extraction of Evolution Descriptions from the Web [article]

Helge Holzmann, Thomas Risse
2017 arXiv   pre-print
However, current structured knowledge bases, such as DBpedia or Freebase, do not provide enough information about evolutions, even though the data is available on their resources, like Wikipedia.  ...  The evolution of named entities affects exploration and retrieval tasks in digital libraries.  ...  In previous work we found that evolution information are available on Wikipedia, yet hidden in the text and not easy to parse [1] . We analyzed Wikipedia regarding name evolution of entities.  ...

Named entity evolution analysis on wikipedia

Helge Holzmann, Thomas Risse
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 ACM conference on Web science - WebSci '14  
We tackle this problem by analyzing Wikipedia in terms of entity evolutions mentioned in articles.  ...  Especially entities mentioned in texts are subject to change. Most severe in terms of information retrieval are name changes.  ...  None of the popular ones, like DBpedia 1 , provide evolution information. An often used resource is semi-structured information from Wikipedia, such as info boxes.  ...

Insights into Entity Name Evolution on Wikipedia [chapter]

Helge Holzmann, Thomas Risse
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We tackle this problem by analyzing Wikipedia in terms of entity evolutions mentioned in articles regardless the structural elements.  ...  Most severe in terms of information retrieval are name changes. In order to find entities that have changed their name over time, search engines need to be aware of this evolution.  ...  In this paper we will show how to collect this information by incorporating lists that are available on Wikipedia and provide name evolution information in a semi-structured form (s. Section 3).  ...

2015 Education Journal  
Two hundred and seventy one students in a third year undergraduate evolution course were presented with an assignment about a fictitious theory for which information previously had been made accessible  ...  Among the students, approximately 90% accessed the online information, with more than half failing to demonstrate any appreciation for deception or error.  ...  ., 'confirm your sources') in a nonexistent journal ('e-Evolution').  ...

Temporal Characterization of the Requests to Wikipedia [chapter]

Antonio J. Reinoso, Jesus M. Gonzalez-Barahona, Rocio Muñoz-Mansilla, Israel Herraiz
2013 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
In addition, we have performed separated characterizations of each Wikipedia edition to compare their respective evolutions over time.  ...  As a result, relevant information fields have been finally stored in a database for persistence and further characterization.  ...  On the other hand, Wikipedia organizes the information it offers in encyclopedic entries commonly referred as articles.  ...

On the Analysis of Wikipedia Activity through Time

Nuno Silva, Daniel Goncalves
2014 2014 18th International Conference on Information Visualisation  
articles from different language wikipedias, find regional and cultural differences of interest and perception.  ...  Wikipedia articles see bursts of update activity whenever a topic is of more interest to the community or has somehow become controversial.  ...  Alas, Wikipedia shows only the most current revision of an article, hiding all the aforementioned information. We use infovis techniques to highlight relevant patterns in the data.  ...

Managing the History of Metadata in Support for DB Archiving and Schema Evolution [chapter]

Carlo A. Curino, Hyun J. Moon, Carlo Zaniolo
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Modern information systems, and web information systems in particular, are faced with frequent database schema changes, which generate the necessity to manage them and preserve the schema evolution history  ...  In this paper, we describe the Panta Rhei Framework designed to provide powerful tools that: (i) facilitate schema evolution and guide the Database Administrator in planning and evaluating changes, (ii  ...  Schema evolution, already a serious problem in traditional information systems [4, 5] , becomes even more critical in web information systems.  ...

Temporal Analysis of Entity Relatedness and its Evolution using Wikipedia and DBpedia [article]

Narumol Prangnawarat, John P. McCrae, Conor Hayes
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Many researchers have made use of the Wikipedia network for relatedness and similarity tasks. However, most approaches use only the most recent information and not historical changes in the network.  ...  We then show that integrating multiple time frames in our methods can give a better overall similarity demonstrating that temporal evolution can have an important effect on entity relatedness.  ...  introduced a temporal aspect for capturing entity evolution in Wikipedia.  ...
