[African Wikimedians] Fwd: [Events] WikiCred Tech Demo Hour September 10, 12pm ET

Announcement: September 10 Zoom Webinar

Wiki Credibility Tech Demo Hour

The WikiCred grants initiative was launched earlier this year with a focus on information credibility/reliability and new tools on open-knowledge platforms like Wikipedia and Wikidata.

The Demo Hour will be held on September 10th at 12 pm EDT where 6 of our grantees will demo their Wikipedia projects. You can register for the online event here. :point_left::point_left:

WikiCred is a grants programme managed by the Credibility Coalition, Hacks Hackers, members of Wikimedia DC, and other groups. We support research, software projects, and Wikimedia events that explore information reliability and credibility in the Wikimedia space and the overall online information ecosystem.

So far, we have funded 12 projects over 3 rounds of funding. You can find a full list of the projects here or our own blog. Projects range from strengthening credible vaccine content on Wikipedia to automating the additions of references to Wikidata.

6 grantees will join us to present their work for 5 mins each followed by a Q&A from the attendees.

Let me know if you have any questions about the project or the event.
