Proceedings of the 13th Conference of the European Chapter of the ACL (EACL 2012) 2012 In this paper, we propose an annotation schema for the discourse analysis of Wikipedia Talk pages aimed at the coordination efforts for article improvement. We apply the annotation schema to a corpus of 100 Talk pages from the Simple English Wikipedia and make the resulting dataset freely available for download1 . Furthermore, we perform automatic dialog act classification on Wikipedia discussions and achieve an average F1 -score of 0.82 with our classification pipeline. 0 0
FlawFinder: A Modular System for Predicting Quality Flaws in Wikipedia PAN English 2012 With over 23 million articles in 285 languages, Wikipedia is the largest free knowledge base on the web. Due to its open nature, everybody is allowed to access and edit the contents of this huge encyclopedia. As a downside of this open access policy, quality assessment of the content becomes a critical issue and is hardly manageable without computational assistance. In this paper, we present FlawFinder, a modular system for automatically predicting quality flaws in unseen Wikipedia articles. It competed in the inaugural edition of the Quality Flaw Prediction Task at the PAN Challenge 2012 and achieved the best precision of all systems and the second place in terms of recall and F1-score. 0 1
Wikipedia revision toolkit: Efficiently accessing Wikipedia's edit history ACL HLT 2011 - 49th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Human Language Technologies, Proceedings of Student Session English 2011 We present an open-source toolkit which allows (i) to reconstruct past states of Wikipedia, and (ii) to efficiently access the edit history of Wikipedia articles. Reconstructing past states of Wikipedia is a prerequisite for reproducing previous experimental work based on Wikipedia. Beyond that, the edit history of Wikipedia articles has been shown to be a valuable knowledge source for NLP, but access is severely impeded by the lack of efficient tools for managing the huge amount of provided data. By using a dedicated storage format, our toolkit massively decreases the data volume to less than 2% of the original size, and at the same time provides an easy-to-use interface to access the revision data. The language-independent design allows to process any language represented in Wikipedia. We expect this work to consolidate NLP research using Wikipedia in general, and to foster research making use of the knowledge encoded in Wikipedia's edit history. 0 0
