Wired: Don’t Ask Wikipedia To Cure The Internet

Wired: Don’t Ask Wikipedia To Cure The Internet. “….YouTube is far from the first tech company, or even the first social platform, to use Wikipedia’s content for its own goals. Its parent company, Alphabet, frequently uses Wikipedia content in Google search results. Facebook is also testing using Wikipedia to fight its own misinformation problem, though it informed the Wikimedia Foundation of its intentions first. Artificial intelligence researchers also frequently use the online encyclopedia—which still adds 20,000 new entries each month—to train algorithms or teach smart assistants. And Levendowski notes that Alphabet-owned Jigsaw used Wikipedia article discussion pages, in part, to train its open-source troll-fighting AI.”
