Deploy item quality classification model for Wikidata
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The quality of items on Wikidata varies. We want to be able to highlight excellent items and find poor quality items to improve them.

The task is to figure out quality criteria for an item and then build tools to automatically assess the quality of a given item.

Take a careful look at the existing showcase items as well as the process and criteria around it:

@Lydia_Pintscher on Wikidata do we only have "Showcase" and "non-showcase" items or is there a metric to grade items on different levels like Wikiproject Article Assessment?

And if there's no such multilevel grading of items, do you think Wikidata can benefit from one?

At the moment there is only showcase/non-showcase. If we can help with automating at least part of the assessment I think more levels might be useful.

I've created a very basic page at Item Quality Classification to take up this task as part of the final year Research project of my university.
The project will start in July and will be of about 7-8 months duration.

I'll fill up more details on the task once I start working on it in July.

As a first step, a discussion about item quality on Wikidata would be of great help. Would be the best place?

I would be getting in touch with the Wikidata and Revision Scoring team with respect to the proceedings of the project soon.

Awesome. Let's have a call to figure out the best way to get you input from the editors. shows you my calendar to find a good time.
