Looking for a Wikimedia tool developer for our research project

Houcemeddine A. Turki
Dear all,
I thank you for your efforts. I am working on a research project to ameliorate linked data quality of Wikidata. I am looking for a develop who can create Gadget tools like Merge that can be implemented on Wikidata to adjust common deficiencies. I have several ideas on how to develop the Gadget tools. But, I lack the skills needed to do that. I ask if someone can join our research project and create the tools for our work. I will attend Wikimania from 16 to 18 August 2019 and I will be honoured to meet him during the conference.
Yours Sincerely,
Houcemeddine Turki (he/him)

Could you be more specific, please? Have there been public discussions
on wikidata.org related to your ideas, that you could link to?
Also, if you asked me to do work I'd probably want to know if it's more
like two hours or more like two weeks, plus what *exactly* you are
thinking of. Otherwise I could not judge if I had sufficient skills.

See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Gadget_kitchen for some basics.

I guess you wanted to write "them", to also include non-male people. :)

Cheers,

Dear Sir,
I thank you for your answer. There were many discussions about this important issue. We have already organized a meeting about the matter and created https://m.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Database_evaluation. Other works can be https://iswc2017.semanticweb.org/wp-content/uploads/papers/PostersDemos/paper639.pdf and http://snap.stanford.edu/wikiworkshop2016/papers/Wiki_Workshop__WWW_2016_paper_11.pdf. This research project is absolutely simple. We define critical matters in the structure of the information provided by Wikidata and we try to develop easy tools to solve them. For example, if a Wikidata property X is asymmetric and X(A,B) exists, then X(B,A) is not possible. However, this particular situation exists in Wikidata. Here, we need a simple tool that let a triple X(A,B) highlighted in yellow if the triple X(B,A) exists. As you see here, the creation of such a tool is simple and does not require a lot of time.
