Since it hasn't been published yet on Facebook, please send me your Facebook profile URL link to my IRC (Balaji030698). I will add you to the testers list so that you can try the chatbot.

Hi everyone,
I have built the PoC for the Facebook Messenger bot. You can find the demo video here.
Currently, I have built it for English and Tamil. It can be extended to other languages if volunteers contribute to training the NLP models. You can find the source code at my GitHub repository.

Will there be any Wikimedia policy related issue in using Facebook's Wit.ai as NLP API for this project?

Hey @Balaji030698, I spoke with Mel about this question. Thanks for your patience :)
One question, do you plan to use Wikimedia Cloud Services or Wikimedia ToolForge?
On licensing, it looks like the Wit.ai API promotes open apps, and has a few open clients on github, but is not itself an open source-licensed service. Per our guiding principle on freedom and open source, we avoid relying on proprietary services for Wikimedia's core services. This isn't a strict requirement for a volunteer project like yours, though. I recommend looking at some other open source NLP frameworks/services to see if any of them will meet your needs. If Wit is the best tool for the job, in your opinion, then you can use it.
It will be your responsibility to make sure the app follows Wit's and Facebook's terms of service. On a related note, I saw that Facebook recently updated their review process for bots, which requires developers to follow a few rules in their bot policies.
Thank you for working on this project. I cannot provide legal advice, but I'm happy to see if I can help if you have any questions about Wikimedia policies.

A MediaWiki page has a lot of properties, as such your class Page has too many methods. I'm not sure if it's valuable to provide a specific class for content urls or images (with source, width, height) to reduce a little the amount.

Balaji030698 added a comment to T194027: Creating a Facebook Messenger Bot for Wikipedia.

According https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/REST_API, the REST API is a Wikimedia-specific but not Wikipedia-specific API.
If you repurpose the library to handle other projects like de.wikipedia etc. perhaps it would be a good idea to support other sites like wiktionary, wikinews, etc. too
In such case, Wikimedia REST Client (wikimedia_rest_client gem name, require 'wikimedia_rest_client' or better wikimedia-rest_client, require wikimedia/rest_client) would be a better name.

Welp. You're using the restbase stuff so the above isn't valid for it, my bad.
But do set a good user agent someplace, as it says in https://www.mediawiki.org/api/rest_v1/

Hello Balaji,
I work on the Wikimedia Foundation's social media team and could see this being a really useful tool that would allow people to pull content rather than having us push it. I am looking forward to seeing feedback from the community — this would be particularly useful if the bot could work in several languages, which would help us reach a more global audience on social media (and could possibly be adapted for chat platforms such as WhatsApp and others...)

@Balaji030698, yes! The NYPL bot itself is written in NodeJS and if you're forking to build on it, then you should do it in NodeJS of course. Rebuilding the whole bot in Ruby is also an[[ URL | name ]] option but the only issue is reinventing the wheel?
Yes, I can help you on Toolforge, can you ping me on IRC or leave your questions here? I'll have a look :) @Dereckson as he said can help you in Ruby!
Thanks for sharing the draft proposal, we'll have a look and for me, I'll leave feedback directly on the proposal document. Thanks :)

This message is for students interested in working on this project for Google-Summer-of-Code (2018)

  • Student application deadline is March 27 16:00 UTC.
  • If you have questions about eligibility, please read the GSoC rules thoroughly here https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/rules/. Wikimedia will not be responsible for verifying your eligibility and also not be able to make any decisions on this. For any clarifying questions, please email gsoc-support@google.com
  • Ensure that by now you have already discussed your implementation approach with your mentors, completed a few bugs/microtasks and made a plan to move forward with the proposal
  • I encourage you to start creating your proposals on Phabricator now to receive timely feedback on them from mentors. Do not wait until the last minute. Give your mentors at least a week's time to review your proposal, so that you could then incorporate any suggestions for changes. Learn how to submit a proposal in our participant's guide: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/Participants (Step 9)
  • Proposals that contain links to successfully merged patches before the application period and submitted on both Phabricator and GSoC portal will only be considered for the review process. So, between now and the application deadline, you could consider working on this task.
  • If you would like to chat with me more about the process or have questions, come and talk to me in the Zulip chat: https://wikimedia.zulipchat.com/

@ArielGlenn @Dereckson I am interested to take up this project in GSoC 2018. Can I develop the bot from scratch using Ruby language?

Hi All,
I am Balaji from India. I have been working on chatbots for the last one year. I have developed an open-source Facebook Messenger chatbot to help hospitals to remind parents about their kid's vaccination days through Facebook Messenger and answer queries about the vaccination schedules. You can find the project at my GitHub repository. I have previously worked on a twitter bot for my hobby project too. I am interested to develop the NYPLEmoji like bot for Commons image as part of GSoC 2018.
