[Announcement] A new formal collaboration in Research
The Research team at the Wikimedia Foundation  has officially started a
new Formal Collaboration  with Djellel Difallah (NYU Abu Dhabi) to work
collaboratively on sockpuppet detection  as part of the Improve
Knowledge Integrity program  and link recommendation  as part of the
Address Knowledge Gaps program . You may recognize Djellel as a former
member of the Research team and we are glad to be able to continue to
collaborate with him as he rejoins academia!
Here are a few pieces of information about this collaboration that we would
like to share with you:
* We aim to keep the research documentation for these projects in the
corresponding research page on meta (sockpuppet detection)  and
phabricator ticket (link recommendation) .
* We are thankful to Djellel for agreeing to spend his time and expertise
on these projects in the coming year, and to those of you who have worked
with us to improve these models.
* I will act as the point of contact for the sockpuppet detection research
and Martin Gerlach (cc'ed) will act as the point of contact for the link
recommendation research in the Wikimedia Foundation. Please feel free to
reach out to one of us (directly, if it cannot be shared publicly) if you
have comments or questions about a specific project.
