  • Discussed the possibility of using LSTMs or RNNs for our neural net
  • Data collection from the categories in WP:backlogs

2. Wikipedia Backlogs

  • Discussed the backlog categories that we need to first start working on
  • A few candidate categories shortlisted were were:
    • Lacking references
    • Accuracy -broken/outdated citations, needs updating, has original research
    • Content - copied and pasted
    • Links - has dead links
