Dr. Halfaker is a principal research scientist at the Wikimedia Foundation and a senior scientist at the University of Minnesota. He studies the intersection of advanced algorithmic technologies and social issues in open production communities (like Wikipedia) using a mixture of experimental engineering, data science, and ethnographic methods. His studies of Wikipedia’s editor decline and his development of Objective Revision Evaluation Service (ORES), an open artificial intelligence (AI) platform, have received substantial attention from the technology press.
