There are some reasons why a person can be skeptical about Wikipedia articles. For example, we can say the possibility of outdated info – human editors can only do so much. Moreover, some bots can edit Wikipedia. Usually, they limit with fighting vandalism or updated canned templates.
Nevertheless, MIT more useful and elegant solution. Its researches developed an Artificial Intelligence system. The system is automatically rewriting out of date sentences in Wikipedia articles while maintains a human tone. It will look out of the line in a carefully crafted paragraph.
The machine learning-based system can recognize the differences between a claim sentence with updated facts and Wikipedia article sentence. If there will be any contradictions between the two sentences, it will use a neutrality masker for pinpointing both the different words that need deleting and the ones it can keep without worries after that encoder-decoder is determining how to rewrite the Wikipedia sentence using simplified representations of both that the new claim and conviction.
Moreover, the system also can supplement datasets meant to train detectors of fake news. It will potentially improve accuracy and reduce bias.
Nevertheless, for prime-time technology is not quite ready. Humans who rate the Artificial Intelligence accuracy gave it average scores for factual updates of 4 out of 5. And for the grammar, they give it 3.85 from 5. Nevertheless, it is still better than other systems generating Text. It suggests that you most probably feel the difference. In case researchers can refine artificial intelligence, this will be useful to make minor edits to the news article, Wikipedia, or other documents in those moments when a human editor is not very much practical.
Claims against Wikipedia
All in all, we know that Wikipedia is an incredible resource. Nevertheless, what sometimes calls questions is the allegations published on its pages. To improve the site’s usability and credibility, the Internet Archive works to make references much more comfortable. It is to follow by linking them with digital copies of books.
So far now, 130,000 references have links to 50,000 digitized books that Archive hosts. If you want to see an example of the action of the new digital referencing, you can check the Wikipedia page for Marti Luther King, Jr. Then, you must check the reference for Adam Fairclough’s book To Redeem the Soul of America: The Southern Christian Leadership Conference & Martin Luther King Jr. You will see a clickable link at the bottom of the page. If you click there, it will take you to the Internet Archive’s digital version of the book, which is open to the page from which the reference was made.
When the Archive is hosting a digital book, there are few pages of preview for checking the reference information. In case you want to read more, you are welcomed to borrow the book’s digital copy through the program of Controlled Digital Lending.
Both robots and users are doing the linking of the references with digital books.
So that is how Wikipedia tries to catch up with the time and Artificial Intelligence use.
