  • Stampy's Wiki
    • https://stampy.ai/wiki/Stampy%27s_Wiki
    • "Stampy's Wiki is a database of questions and answers which serves as the backend for the Stampy project—a volunteer effort to create a comprehensive FAQ on Artificial Intelligence existential safety, and a bot (User:Stampy) capable of using the FAQ and other resources to educate people about AI alignment via an interactive natural language interface."
  • Polymath Project
    • wiki: https://asone.ai/polymath/index.php?title=Main_Page
    • blog/rules: https://polymathprojects.org/general-polymath-rules/
      • "Polymath projects are massively collaborative mathematical research programs, in which a single problem, group of problems, or other mathematical task is worked on by a large group of mathematicians. (While most polymath projects to date have been focused on solving a mathematical problem, one can envision other types of polymath projects in the future, e.g. a collaborative reading seminar, or a collaborative mathematical exposition project, or even some collaborative formulation of conjectures.) The key word here is collaborative: this is not a competition to be the first to solve the problem, but is instead a team effort, in which each partial insight or other iota of progress gained by any one participant is shared with the other participants via this blog (and also the wiki). All interested observers are welcome to jump in and participate in any of these projects, regardless of mathematical level, though it is recommended that one read and understand the guidelines here first."
  • Wikiversity
    • https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Wikiversity:Main_Page
      • "Wikiversity is a Wikimedia Foundation project devoted to learning resources, learning projects, and research for use in all levels, types, and styles of education from pre-school to university, including professional training and informal learning. We invite teachers, students, and researchers to join us in creating open educational resources and collaborative learning communities. To learn more about Wikiversity, try a guided tour, learn about adding content, or start editing now."
  • nLab
    • wiki: https://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/HomePage
      • The nLab records and explores a wide range of mathematics, physics, and philosophy. Along with work of an expository nature, original material can be found in abundance, as can notes from evolving research. Where mathematics, physics, and philosophy arise in other fields, computer science and linguistics for example, the nLab explores these too. If you take a little time to find something in the literature, or to work through a proof or example, or to find an intuitive or new way to think about something, add a note on it to the nLab! Others will benefit, and you may well find that it proves useful to you too. A fundamental idea behind the nLab is that the linking between pages of a wiki is a profound way to record knowledge, placing it in a rich context.

How is openquestions.wiki different from these platforms?[edit | edit source]

So far we haven't been able to find any similar project that is both:

  1. Fully general. This wiki aims to be as general as possible. That is, we aren't focused on a particular topic or topics. Wikiversity is the only other similar place we've found that is fully general. Stackexchange wiki questions might be, but we don't know enough about those to tell. And the wiki question pages are only one type of page on stackexchange. And there are also restrictions on who can edit those pages. Something like needing 100 points to edit.
  2. Centralized. By this we mean that each question only gets one page. Wikiversity allows anyone to create their own projects, with little pressure to synthesize similar pages. nLab, the polymath project, and stampy's wiki are centralized in the sense that there is only one page per question/topic (we think). But they are all limited in scope.
