Articles with links to DAB pagesEdit

I have collected several pages which contain {{disambiguation needed}} tags on computing-related topics which might be resolvable with expert attention. They range between the very technical and the very vague (in some cases, it seems quite possible that the editor who made the link didn't know what they were talking about). To find the problem, search for 'disam' in read view or for '{{d' in edit view. If you manage to solve any of these puzzles, remove the dab-needed tag from the article, and post {{done}} here.

Thanks in advance, Narky Blert (talk)

Assistive Intelligence and TechnologiesEdit

  What is the correlation between the functions of certain parts of the human brain and a CPU?

In order to extend or create a new type of life-form -- whether it is "synthetic" or "Naturally occurring" -- you will and would/should need a template of some sort. ARM64 for short-term memory, input. POWER for learning, recurring accumulatively cumulative tasks. SPARC64 for database, long term memory, scaling, "growth", "evolution" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2603:3003:4BBC:2000:9644:52FF:FEC2:881 (talk) 20:05, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

Talk:Open Configuration and Management Layer#Is this topic notable?Edit

I've started a section at the above-linked talk page: there is a fair bit of information to be harvested from the links I give on OCML, but since, while some of the ideas seem interesting, it did not seem to be the clear impetus for anything that followed. Does the page have a future? — Charles Stewart (talk) 14:38, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

Category:Mobile/desktop convergenceEdit

I've come across the recently-created Category:Mobile/desktop convergence and am not quite sure what to make of it - rename, expand,delete? At present it lists mobile devices and OSs that are designed to also plug into a desktop setup. Rather than take it straight to WP:CFD I thought I'd run it past you guys first - so what do you think? Le Deluge (talk) 19:32, 17 December 2019 (UTC)

It looks very confused. The title says Mobile/Desktop ... the description says laptop. Lots of alt. words here ... mobile-cellphone and laptop-notebook. Let alone is the slash recommended or permitted? Too many problems .... category of confusion. Thats my view. Djm-leighpark (talk) 19:48, 17 December 2019 (UTC)
That's my feeling, but I thought there might be something I was missing. Slashes are permitted in cases like Category:OS/2 where they are part of a name but otherwise discouraged, ideally a category name should reflect an article name. Le Deluge (talk) 20:56, 18 December 2019 (UTC)

RFC on Internet SocietyEdit

The Internet Society article, listed as high importance in this project, is currently trashed. I wrote a fresh base version, and posted it. It got reversed a couple times, so I now have a RFC on whether it should be restored. Currently only one comment, apart from an admin keeping an eye on. If you have time please drop by and look it over. Wwwhatsup (talk) 05:03, 23 December 2019 (UTC)

Universal Business LanguageEdit

The article is a self-promotional COI disaster full of excessive unencyclopedic detail and link spam, but it also has some potential topic-wise. It would be great if anyone interested in the subject matter could have a look at the article to do some basic cleanup. Many thanks for any help. GermanJoe (talk) 16:15, 1 January 2020 (UTC)

Golog Programming languageEdit

I have created an article from AFC request, please review my draft. Draft:Golog — Preceding unsigned comment added by 4444dot (talkcontribs) 01:41, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

Request for review: HTML elementEdit

Anybody willing, please review my recent contribution to HTML element article (see DIFF here), especially the most recent addition at Special:Diff/937174234. Feel free to improve or move elsewhere if necessary, or remove if excessive. --CiaPan (talk) 14:25, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
If this is not an appropriate place for this request, please move it elsewhere as well. CiaPan (talk)

Edit conflict in Draft:OpenVINOEdit

A while ago, a new draft was created about a software for realizing neural networks with the Intel compute stick. The software is mentioned in Google Scholar by independent sources and it's about Artificial Intelligence, so it's for sure that the article is needed in Wikipedia. I think the draft in the current form has some serious issues, but the article can be improved by adding valuable sources. Unfortunately, my edit in the draft section was made undo Special:Diff/937360430.

The question is what will happen next? One option is to wait for the review which is happen in 3 month. They will come to the same conclusion like the last time, that the article has a low quality and isn't moved into the main section. The other option is, that a high ranking admin will take action and improve the article by putting my edit back into the article. Or the third option is, that my edit was wrong and the draft get accepted in 3 months as a valuable article.

My experience with Wikipedia is too low to provide a probability matrix for the next events, but it was a pleasure to write about the issue here at the talk page and I'd like to say hello to the Wikiproject computing. Manuel --ManuelRodriguez (talk) 19:36, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

The draft is far from mainspace ready and your contribution had some issues ... I'm a lowly scruff not a high ranking admin but I've viewed that article previously and *might* take a gander at it in a couple of days ... if I've done nothing in a couple of days give me a ping. Thankyou. Djm-leighpark (talk) 19:57, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
We could use some help reducing the backlog at WP:WPAFC. You don't need to be high-ranking to join this project, you just need to have been an editor for 90 days and have 500 edits and familiarize yourself with the process and policy. Leave a request at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Articles for creation/Participants if you want to join. The policy, in a nutshell, is to accept drafts that are unlikely to be deleted at WP:AFD. This draft appears to meet this criterion so I have accepted it. As to ManuelRodriguez's contributions, that can be handled with WP:BRD. ~Kvng (talk) 14:47, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
