Die Veranstaltungsreihe Monsters of Law wurde von Wikimedia Deutschland ins Leben gerufen, um sich juristischen Fragen rund um Freies Wissen und seinen Rahmenbedingungen anzunehmen. In unserer täglichen Arbeit kommen wir oft mit dem Urheberrecht, mit haftungs- und persönlichkeitsrechtlichen Fragen in Kontakt. Häufig stehen wir dabei vor Problemen, die selbst gestandene Juristinnen und Juristen nicht aus dem Stegreif beantworten können. Im Dialog mit Experten soll darum gemeinsam grundlegenden Fragen auf den Grund gegangen werden. Diesen Donnerstag widmet sich die Veranstaltung dem Thema „Der Lizenzhinweisgenerator: Ein neues Tool zur sicheren Nachnutzung von Bildern im Netz“. ALEX überträgt das Event live ab 18:10 Uhr im Eventstream. Die Verwendung und Nachnutzung von Bildern und Fotos im Netz stellt Institutionen wie Privatpersonen vor eine Reihe von rechtlichen Fragen. Um eine sichere Nachnutzung von Bildern des freien Medienarchivs Wikimedia Commons zu erleichtern, präsentiert Wikimedia Deutschland ein neues Tool: Den Lizenzhinweisgenerator. John Weitzmann, Referent Politik & Recht bei Wikimedia Deutschland, erläutert zunächst die fünf wichtigsten Punkte, die bei der Nachnutzung von Creative-Commons-lizenzierten Bildern zu beachten sind. Till Jäger, Fachanwalt für Urheber- und Medienrecht, und Jens Ohlig, Softwareentwickler bei Wikimedia Deutschland, stellen im Anschluss den Lizenzhinweisgenerator zur sicheren Nachnutzung von CC-lizenzierten Bildern vor. Sie haben das Tool gemeinsam entwickelt und beantworten dazu bei Monsters of Law alle Fragen. Abonniert uns und werdet Teil der ALEX Familie!

However, almost all content hosted on Wikimedia Commons may be freely reused subject to certain restrictions (in many cases). You do not need to obtain a specific statement of permission from the licensor(s) of the content unless you wish to use the work under different terms than the license states. Content under open content licenses may be reused without any need to contact the licensor(s), but just keep in mind that: some licenses require that the original creator be attributed; some licenses require that the specific license be identified when reusing (including, in some cases, stating or linking to the terms of the license); some licenses require that if you modify the work, your modifications must also be similarly freely licensed; and finally. Content in the public domain may not have a strict legal requirement of attribution (depending on the jurisdiction of content reuse), but attribution is recommended to give correct provenance. While the copyright and licensing information supplied for each image is believed to be accurate, the Wikimedia Foundation does not provide any warranty regarding the copyright status or correctness of licensing terms. If you decide to reuse files from Commons, you should verify the copyright status of each image just as you would when obtaining images from other sources. Other restrictions may apply. These may include trademarks, patents, personality rights, moral rights, privacy rights, or any of the many other legal causes which are independent of copyright and vary greatly by jurisdiction.

The showcase is hosted at the Wikimedia Foundation every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 9:30 Pacific Time and is live-streamed on YouTube. 🤍 Theme AI model governance Bridging AI and HCI. Incorporating Human Values into the Development of AI Technologies By Haiyi Zhu (Carnegie Mellon University) The increasing accuracy and falling costs of AI have stimulated the increased use of AI technologies in mainstream user-facing applications and services. However, there is a disconnect between mathematically rigorous AI approaches and the human stakeholders’ needs, motivations, and values, as well as organizational and institutional realities, contexts, and constraints; this disconnect is likely to undermine practical initiatives and may sometimes lead to negative societal impacts. In this presentation, I will discuss my research on incorporating human stakeholders’ values and feedback into the creation process of AI technologies. I will describe a series of projects in the context of the Wikipedia community to illustrate my approach. I hope this presentation will contribute to the rich ongoing conversation concerning bridging HCI and AI and using HCI methods to address AI challenges. ML Governance. First Steps By Andy Craze (Wikimedia Foundation, Machine Learning Team) The WMF Machine Learning team is upgrading the Foundation's infrastructure to support the modern machine learning ecosystem. As part of this work, the team seeks to understand its ethical and legal responsibilities for developing and hosting predictive models within a global context. Drawing from previous WMF research related to ethical & human-centered machine learning, the team wishes to begin a series of conversations to discuss how we can deploy responsible systems that are inclusive to newcomers and non-experts, while upholding our commitment to free and open knowledge.

This month's presentations: Citation Needed: A Taxonomy and Algorithmic Assessment of Wikipedia's Verifiability By Miriam Redi, Research, Wikimedia Foundation Among Wikipedia's core guiding principles, verifiability policies have a particularly important role. Verifiability requires that information included in a Wikipedia article be corroborated against reliable secondary sources. Because of the manual labor needed to curate and fact-check Wikipedia at scale, however, its contents do not always evenly comply with these policies. Citations (i.e. reference to external sources) may not conform to verifiability requirements or may be missing altogether, potentially weakening the reliability of specific topic areas of the free encyclopedia. In this project, we aimed to provide an empirical characterization of the reasons why and how Wikipedia cites external sources to comply with its own verifiability guidelines. First, we constructed a taxonomy of reasons why inline citations are required by collecting labeled data from editors of multiple Wikipedia language editions. We then collected a large-scale crowdsourced dataset of Wikipedia sentences annotated with categories derived from this taxonomy. Finally, we designed and evaluated algorithmic models to determine if a statement requires a citation, and to predict the citation reason based on our taxonomy. We evaluated the robustness of such models across different classes of Wikipedia articles of varying quality, as well as on an additional dataset of claims annotated for fact-checking purposes.

ACM. 🤍 Patrolling on Wikipedia By Jonathan T. Morgan, Research, Wikimedia Foundation I will present initial findings from an ongoing research study of patrolling workflows on Wikimedia projects. Editors patrol recent pages and edits to ensure that Wikimedia projects maintains high quality as new content comes in. Patrollers revert vandalism and review newly-created articles and article drafts. Patrolling of new pages and edits is vital work. In addition to making sure that new content conforms to Wikipedia project policies, patrollers are the first line of defense against disinformation, copyright infringement, libel and slander, personal threats, and other forms of vandalism on Wikimedia projects. This research project is focused on understanding the needs, priorities, and workflows of editors who patrol new content on Wikimedia projects. The findings of this research can inform the development of better patrolling tools as well as non-technological interventions intended to support patrollers and the activity of patrolling

Title: The Science of Knowledge Integrity Speaker: Miriam Redi – Research Scientist at Wikimedia Foundation. Abstract: Wikipedia is one of the most visited sites on the Web and a common source of information for many users. As an encyclopedia, Wikipedia is not a source of original information, but was conceived as a gateway to secondary sources: according to Wikipedia’s guidelines, to ensure knowledge integrity facts must be backed up by reliable sources that reflect the full spectrum of views on the topic. Although citations lie at the very heart of Wikipedia, little is known about how users interact with them, how contributors use them, and the overall citation coverage. In this talk, we will see how machine learning can support knowledge integrity and help understand and monitor information quality in Wikimedia spaces.

The Monthly Wikimedia Research Showcase is a public showcase of recent research by the Wikimedia Foundation's Research Team and guest presenters from the academic community. The showcase is hosted at the Wikimedia Foundation every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 9:30 Pacific Time and is live-streamed on YouTube. 🤍 Theme The value and importance of Wikipedia The Importance of Wikipedia to Search Engines and Other Systems By Nick Vincent (Northwestern University) A growing body of work has highlighted the important role that Wikipedia’s volunteer-created content plays in helping search engines achieve their core goal of addressing the information needs of hundreds of millions of people. In this talk, I will discuss a recent study looking at how often, and where, Wikipedia links appear in search engine results. In this study, we found that Wikipedia links appeared prominently and frequently in Google, Bing, and DuckDuckGo results, though less often for searches from a mobile device. I will connect this study to past work looking at the value of Wikipedia links to other online platforms, and to ongoing discussions around Wikipedia's value as a training source for modern AI. On the Value of Wikipedia as a Gateway to the Web By Tiziano Piccardi (EPFL) By linking to external websites, Wikipedia can act as a gateway to the Web. However, little is known about the amount of traffic generated by Wikipedia's external links. We fill this gap in a detailed analysis of usage logs gathered from Wikipedia users' client devices. We discovered that in one month, English Wikipedia generated 43M clicks to external websites, with the highest click-through rate on the official links listed in the infoboxes. Our analysis highlights that the articles about businesses, educational institutions, and websites show the highest engagement, and for some content, Wikipedia act as a stepping stone to the intended destination. We conclude our analysis by quantifying the hypothetical economic value of the clicks received by external websites. We estimate that the respective website owners would need to pay a total of $713 million per month to obtain the same volume of traffic via sponsored search. These findings shed light on Wikipedia's role not only as an important source of information but also as a high-traffic gateway to the broader Web ecosystem.

Wikipedia Text Reuse: Within and Without By Martin Potthast, Leipzig University We study text reuse related to Wikipedia at scale by compiling the first corpus of text reuse cases within Wikipedia as well as without (i.e., reuse of Wikipedia text in a sample of the Common Crawl). To discover reuse beyond verbatim copy and paste, we employ state-of-the-art text reuse detection technology, scaling it for the first time to process the entire Wikipedia as part of a distributed retrieval pipeline. We further report on a pilot analysis of the 100 million reuse cases inside, and the 1.6 million reuse cases outside Wikipedia that we discovered. Text reuse inside Wikipedia gives rise to new tasks such as article template induction, fixing quality flaws, or complementing Wikipedia’s ontology. Text reuse outside Wikipedia yields a tangible metric for the emerging field of quantifying Wikipedia’s influence on the web. To foster future research into these tasks, and for reproducibility’s sake, the Wikipedia text reuse corpus and the retrieval pipeline are made freely available. Paper Demo Characterizing Wikipedia Reader Demographics and Interests By Isaac Johnson, Wikimedia Foundation Building on two past surveys on the motivation and needs of Wikipedia readers (Why We Read Wikipedia; Why the World Reads Wikipedia), we examine the relationship between Wikipedia reader demographics and their interests and needs. Specifically, we run surveys in thirteen different languages that ask readers three questions about their motivation for reading Wikipedia (motivation, needs, and familiarity) and five questions about their demographics (age, gender, education, locale, and native language). We link these survey results with the respondents' reading sessions i.e. sequence of Wikipedia page views to gain a more fine-grained understanding of how a reader's context relates to their activity on Wikipedia. We find that readers have a diversity of backgrounds but that the high-level needs of readers do not correlate strongly with individual demographics. We also find, however, that there are relationships between demographics and specific topic interests that are consistent across many cultures and languages. This work provides insights into the reach of various Wikipedia language editions and the relationship between content or contributor gaps and reader gaps. See the meta page for more details.
