Elusive vandalism detection in Wikipedia: A text stability-based approach Classification
Vandalism detection
International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management, Proceedings English 2010 The open collaborative nature of wikis encourages participation of all users, but at the same time exposes their content to vandalism. The current vandalism-detection techniques, while effective against relatively obvious vandalism edits, prove to be inadequate in detecting increasingly prevalent sophisticated (or elusive) vandal edits. We identify a number of vandal edits that can take hours, even days, to correct and propose a text stability-based approach for detecting them. Our approach is focused on the likelihood of a certain part of an article being modified by a regular edit. In addition to text-stability, our machine learning-based technique also takes into account edit patterns. We evaluate the performance of our approach on a corpus comprising of 15000 manually labeled edits from the Wikipedia Vandalism PAN corpus. The experimental results show that text-stability is able to improve the performance of the selected machine-learning algorithms significantly. 0 0

Cosmos: A wiki data management system Version control systems
WikiSym English 2009 Wiki applications are becoming increasingly important for knowledge sharing between large numbers of users. To prevent against vandalism and recover from damaging edits, wiki applications need to maintain revision histories of all documents. Due to the large amounts of data and traffic, a Wiki application needs to store the data economically on disk and processes them efficiently. Current wiki data management systems make a trade-off between storage requirement and access time for document update and retrieval. We introduce a new data management system, Cosmos, to balance this trade-off. Copyright 0 0
