WSDM Cup 2017

WSDM Cup Challenge
  • We invite you to take part in one of the following shared tasks:

    Task 1

    Vandalism Detection — Given a Wikidata revision, is it damaging? This task is about detecting vandalism as well as all other kinds of damaging edits to Wikidata. In doing so, not only Wikidata’s integrity is protected, but also that of all information systems making use of the knowledge base.

    Task 2

    Triple Scoring — Compute relevance scores for triples from type-like relations. For example, the triple “Johnny_Depp profession Actor” should get a high score, because acting is Depp’s main profession, whereas “Quentin_Tarantino profession Actor” should get a low score, because Tarantino is more of a director than an actor. Such scores are a basic ingredient for ranking results in entity search.
