@gklyne @wsREST Maybe you get inspired once you see our CfP :-) We can’t do much about the travel budget, besides maybe VC you in…

@IgorBrigadir Guess why our paper is called “MJ no more…”arxiv.org/abs/1303.4702aD). Full text search for “shoulders” :-@milesosbornene

@gklyne Judging from your REST tweet spree, you might be interested in submitting to @wsREST :-)

@edsu Right. For the time being, one can <del>at best</del><ins>simply</ins> roll ones own instance of Wikipedia Live Monitor ;-)

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@IgorBrigadir @edsu Fair enough, but no history (no std. deviation) for “just now” created breaking news articles… But works for many cases.

via Echofon in reply to IgorBrigadir

@IgorBrigadir @karpathy @edsu LOL, mostly this. Initially required >1 languages, but now ≥1. Also had ≥2 concurrent editors, now ≥3.

IgorBrigadir RT @karpathy “We set α = 0.1 because that’s the only number we had time to try and it seemed to work okay ” :P @tomayac @edsu

@edsu For text-only: github.com/tomayac/wikipe…. For media galleries: github.com/tomayac/wikipe…. Hi callback hell ;-)

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu Fully agree. Human in the loop makes total sense, also common “stop hashtags”, like stop words now. Internationally for all languages.

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu (In no way saying current settings’re perfect.) Long-term, article analysis needed & better understanding of article creation process.

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu Getting these thresholds “right” is incredibly hard. Also very much a matter of taste and how “breaking” you require the news to be.

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu Yes. Also surprised, but breaking news conditions (see paper or settings in app) weren’t fulfilled. Mostly ≥3 concurrent editors one.

@netlabsorg @RubenVerborgh Ironing out some issues later today w/ Ruben, but watch this space for updates ;-)

via Echofon in reply to linkedktk

@edsu Probably a lot of noise, think of hashtags like . Worth playing around w/, though, interesting idea! Looking forward to code :-)

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu Possible: let @WikiLiveMon detect breaking news, extract hashtags from rel. microposts (based on article titles), follow $TWTR stream.

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@lbjay @edsu People who like @WikiLiveMon also tend to like @mediagalleries ;-) First described here arxiv.org/abs/1403.4289.

via Echofon in reply to lbjay

@remagio @edsu Sure, you can simply adapt github.com/tomayac/wikipe… to make @WikiLiveMon cover only part of the Wikiverse.

via Echofon in reply to remagio

@edsu @lbjay You could adapt the “email” function (link last tweet) & extract hashtags from found microposts; then archive to DB (or email).

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@lbjay @edsu Not sure I fully follow, but @WikiLiveMon already lets you archive posts related to detected events: github.com/tomayac/wikipe…
