À la fin du WikiMOOC, vous serez même amené à créer votre tout premier article sur Wikipédia."

Google's 'Babel fish' heralds future of translation | TechCentral, Ashish Venugopal / D... - 0 views

    "In Douglas Adams's famous Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series of science-fiction books, interstellar species use Babel fish - "small, yellow, leech-like" creatures that feed on "brain-wave energy" - to translate speech in real time. A team of developers at Google is working on the real thing, using statistical models to translate different languages, including Afrikaans, on the Web and on mobile phones, using voice input and output as well as text. TechCentral sat down with Google Translate research scientist Ashish Venugopal at Google's headquarters in Silicon Valley last week and asked him about the stumbling blocks to effective real-time translation and the future of the technology. This is an edited transcript of that interview. (...).Do you have a team of linguists working all over the world? We have a team of statisticians, all working right over there [points and laughs]. It's less linguistically orientated. There are linguistic ideas that influence our decisions. To give you an example, when I was working on the last set of Indian languages that were launched, I didn't use any linguistic knowledge; I used Wikipedia and my grandmother. So, it's Wikipedia, my grandmother and statistics. That's what we use to put a language together. - Duncan McLeod, TechCentral"

    Fabrizio, è un'applicazione che "gira" sia su sistemi operativi Windows che su Mac?
  •  
    Al momento l'ho solo taggato e ho raccolto qualche tutorial per approfondire; non l'ho ancora provato. Sembra molto interessante anche perché funziona anche come aggregatore da feed. Da quel che ho potuto vedere dai tutorial (ma è anche vero che sono datati di un paio d'anni) è sviluppata sino ad ora solo per linux e windows anche se registra da qualunque fonte incluso mac. Tutorials http://youtu.be/wOr1ZeQG__k http://youtu.be/yOp-8rCOr84 approfondirò appena possibile, fino al 30 sono appresso a mappe e Gis.

    Nadia, nel giro velocissimo che ho fatto, ho letto ( http://fosslc.org/drupal/freeseer ) che funziona anche su Mac.

Seven years after Nature, pilot study compares Wikipedia favorably to other encyclopedi... - 2 views

    "Posted by Dario Taraborelli on August 2, 2012 Improving the quality of articles has long been one of the primary aims of contributors to Wikipedia, and is one of the Wikimedia movement's 2010-15 strategic priorities, but measuring it objectively has remained a challenge. In 2005, Nature famously reported that Wikipedia articles on scientific topics contained just four errors per article on average, compared to three errors per article in the online edition of Encyclopaedia Britannica. Britannica objected to the report, but Nature stood by it, and the report remains widely cited today. Since that time, however, there have been relatively few independent analyses of Wikipedia article quality, despite the enormous growth of the project. Wikipedia today counts more than 23 million articles across languages (more than 4 million articles in the English Wikipedia alone) compared to 3.7 million total articles in 2005; today it ranks 6th by overall traffic according to Alexa, while it ranked 37th in 2005. (...) The Wikimedia Foundation is announcing the release of a pilot study conducted by Epic, an e-learning consultancy, in partnership with Oxford University - "Assessing the Accuracy and Quality of Wikipedia Entries Compared to Popular Online Alternative Encyclopaedias: A Preliminary Comparative Study Across Disciplines in English, Spanish and Arabic." The study compared a sample of English Wikipedia articles to equivalent articles in Encyclopaedia Britannica, Spanish Wikipedia to Enciclonet, and Arabic Wikipedia to Mawsoah and Arab Encyclopaedia. 22 articles in the sample were blind-assessed by 2 to 3 native speaking academic experts each, both quantitatively and qualitatively. The small size of the sample does not allow us to generalize the results to Wikipedia as a whole. However, as a pilot primarily focused on methodology, the study offers new insights into the design of a protocol for expert assessment of encyclopedic contents. For our editor community a

    The following is a comparison of RSS feed aggregators. Often e-mail programs and web browsers have the ability to display RSS feeds. They are listed here, too. Many BitTorrent clients support RSS feeds for broadcatching (see Comparison of BitTorrent clients). With the rise of Cloud computing, some cloud based services offer as well the feed aggregation. They are listed here as well.
