The Growth, Android, and Structured Data teams are all interested in building features that help users add images from Commons to articles, with the assistance of algorithms. This epic collects all the work on the algorithm and backend as we research, test, ideate, prototype, and build out these features. Major components of this work include:
- Image matching algorithm from the Research team, which proposes images for articles based on Wikidata.
- Proof-of-concept API built by Platform Engineering team.
To see the Structured Data team's work on placing images on unillustrated articles, see this Phabricator epic: T267674: [Epic] Build Media Matching API for bots/scripts
