Cool Bot[edit]

Hi, I think it's really cool that you created a bot that detects vandalism. Is there any reason why you chose to write the majority of your bot in C/C++ instead of the other languages? Also what direction do you think is next after the vandalism bot? Thanks! --Hiitsjamez (talk) 05:34, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

The primary motivating factor in choosing C++ over other languages is that the machine learning core needs to be fast as it has to keep up with the edit rate of Wikipedia as well as occasionally process hundreds of thousands of edits when retraining the bot after tweaking settings. C++ provides close-to-the-metal performance for executing the ANN. Sure, today there are libraries for Python and other languages that allow for fast machine learning in them, but the core of those libraries are also written in C or C++. And those weren't around or at least weren't mature when ClueBot NG was written.
The next direction that anti-vandalism bots will take will probably be toward better NLP and better learning models like CNNs combined with better datasets. -- Cobi(t|c|b) 06:39, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Archival edit by bot without leaving link to Archive page[edit]

Hi, thanks for your work on this bot. There seems to be an edit it made on this page that removed a lot of material to archive but did not include any link to the created archive page: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Michael_Shermer&diff=prev&oldid=844643772&diffmode=source

The archived material is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Michael_Shermer/Archives/_1

It looks like it possible that the header template on the talk page is supposed to include arvhive links, but the new archive link is not showing up anywhere that I could see. So I guess the question is about the bot making sure the new archive page is linked adequately. If I'm missing something, please let me know. mennonot (talk) 19:22, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

A cup of coffee for you![edit]

Cup-o-coffee-simple.svg You need this. Just sayin'. You've been working nonstop for the past decade or so. Hdjensofjfnen (If you want to trout me, go ahead!) 23:37, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
