Abstract
-

Project WikiLoop is an engineering effort initiated by Google engineers, based on Google's big data resources, to contribute knowledge to open knowledge ecosystems such as Wikipedia, adhering to Wikipedia community policies.
Search engines have been relying on the health of the open knowledge world, most notably Wikipedia. Yet there are few established efforts to allow continuous contributions of knowledge back to the Wikimedia ecosystem. Project WikiLoop, which was initiated by a engineers at Google, aims at rethinking our efforts in making more knowledge more accessible to the open knowledge ecosystems. We generate data using our computational power to identify potential issues. We build tools, such as bots, games and webapps, to help editors address these issues. We aim to ensure that we are following community policies (such as WP:NPOV), and that we contribute transparently and unbiased.
