Start discussing and processing 2 formal collaborations for knowledge gaps metrics definition
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In order to measure knowledge gaps specified in the knowledge gaps taxonomy, we want to develop metrics. For many gaps, we do not have metrics; for example gaps related to neutral point of view, or verifiability. Therefore, the aim is to initiate new formal collaborations to define metrics.

  • Identify gaps to work on with collaborators
  • Identify potential collaborators for individual gaps
  • Reach out to collaborators

Event Timeline

Update week 2020-10-26:

  • blocked on ongoing discussions on how to approach the metrics for the taxonomy (how far we want to go for each metric, how many metrics, which metrics)

Update week 2020-11-03:

  • we have still been discussing how to approach the work on metrics. some consensus around metrics based on surveys and content-diversity gaps.
  • reached out to Marc-miquel to discuss potential collaboration to work on metrics related to diversity of content.

update week 2020-11-16:

  • started discussing with Marc around possibility to collaborate on gaps related to content diversity

update week 2020-12-04:

As we are progressing in revising the taxonomy, the picture becomes more clear about which gaps to focus on. Ongoing discussions with team suggest focus on gaps related to content-dimension.

  • continuing discussions with Marc around work on gaps on content-diversity

update week 2020-12-11:

defining a schema for the components necessary in development of a metric for a gap (in order to be able to scope the work more narrowly). this can then be applied across all gaps.

Task completed. Marking as resolved.
