Historically, AI has been used to filter vandalism, facilitate searching content, and extract structured information from text. In this session, we'll explore both old and new problem spaces where artificial intelligence will be able to help Wikimedia Projects.
There's no good list of open projects and contact lists for AI developers to reference.
Develop a list of desired projects for AI (including current ones!) and initiate a list of interested parties who want to be consulted and made aware of new developments.
