MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory taps AI and machine learning to correct and update outdated Wikipedia articles
The English-language Wikipedia contains over 6 million articles, and the combined versions for all other languages exceed 28 billion words over 52 million articles in 309 languages. Wikipedia’s an incomparably valuable resource for knowledge seekers, but it requires constant pruning by the over 132,000 registered active monthly editors.
In search of an autonomous solution, researchers at MIT have developed an system that uses AI and machine learning to address inconsistencies in Wikipedia articles. Thanks to a family of algorithms, it’s able to identify errors and update the articles as needed, using the latest information from around the web to produce revised sentences.
