Andrew G. West, Sampath Kannan, and Insup Lee, "Spatio-Temporal Analysis of Wikipedia Metadata and the STiki Anti-Vandalism Tool", 6th International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration (WikiSym '10) . July 2010. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/1832772.1832797
The bulk of Wikipedia anti-vandalism tools require natural language processing over the article or diff text. However, our prior work demonstrated the feasibility of using spatio-temporal properties to locate malicious edits. STiki is a real-time, on-Wikipedia tool leveraging this technique.
The associated poster reviews STiki's methodology and performance. We find competing anti-vandalism tools inhibit maximal performance. However, the tool proves particularly adept at mitigating long-term embedded vandalism. Further, its robust and language-independent nature make it well-suited for use in less-patrolled Wiki installations.
