I need to create a dataset of globally locked users and I have found them
on MariaDB: *select * from centralauth.globaluser where gu_locked=1.*
Does anyone know where the lock timestamp and reason are stored?
Thanks in advance!

This month's Wikimedia Research Showcase will be held on Wednesday, June
23, at 16:30 UTC (9:30am PDT). The theme is "AI model governance" with
presentations from Haiyi Zhu of Carnegie Mellon University and Andy Craze
and Chris Albon of the Wikimedia Foundation's Machine Learning Team.
Speaker: Haiyi Zhu (Carnegie Mellon University)
Title: Bridging AI and HCI: Incorporating Human Values into the Development
of AI Technologies
Abstract: The increasing accuracy and falling costs of AI have stimulated
the increased use of AI technologies in mainstream user-facing applications
and services. However, there is a disconnect between mathematically
rigorous AI approaches and the human stakeholders’ needs, motivations, and
values, as well as organizational and institutional realities, contexts,
and constraints; this disconnect is likely to undermine practical
initiatives and may sometimes lead to negative societal impacts. In this
presentation, I will discuss my research on incorporating human
stakeholders’ values and feedback into the creation process of AI
technologies. I will describe a series of projects in the context of the
Wikipedia community to illustrate my approach. I hope this presentation
will contribute to the rich ongoing conversation concerning bridging HCI
and AI and using HCI methods to address AI challenges.

Title: ML Governance: First Steps
Abstract: The WMF Machine Learning team is upgrading the Foundation's
infrastructure to support the modern machine learning ecosystem. As part of
this work, the team seeks to understand its ethical and legal
responsibilities for developing and hosting predictive models within a
global context. Drawing from previous WMF research related to ethical &
human-centered machine learning, the team wishes to begin a series of
conversations to discuss how we can deploy responsible systems that are
inclusive to newcomers and non-experts, while upholding our commitment to
free and open knowledge.

Join the Research Team at the Wikimedia Foundation  for their monthly
Office hours on 2021-06-01 at 16:00-17:00 UTC (9am PT/6pm CEST).
To participate, join the video-call via this link . There is no set
agenda - feel free to add your item to the list of topics in the etherpad
 (You can do this after you join the meeting, too.), otherwise you are
welcome to also just hang out. More detailed information (e.g. about how to
attend) can be found here .
Through these office hours, we aim to make ourselves more available to
answer some of the research related questions that you as Wikimedia
volunteer editors, organizers, affiliates, staff, and researchers face in
your projects and initiatives. Some example cases we hope to be able to
support you in:
You have a specific research related question that you suspect you
should be able to answer with the publicly available data and you don’t
know how to find an answer for it, or you just need some more help with it.
For example, how can I compute the ratio of anonymous to registered editors
in my wiki?
You run into repetitive or very manual work as part of your Wikimedia
contributions and you wish to find out if there are ways to use machines to
improve your workflows. These types of conversations can sometimes be
harder to find an answer for during an office hour, however, discussing
them can help us understand your challenges better and we may find ways to
work with each other to support you in addressing it in the future.
You want to learn what the Research team at the Wikimedia Foundation
does and how we can potentially support you. Specifically for affiliates:
if you are interested in building relationships with the academic
institutions in your country, we would love to talk with you and learn
more. We have a series of programs that aim to expand the network of
Wikimedia researchers globally and we would love to collaborate with those
of you interested more closely in this space.
You want to talk with us about one of our existing programs .
Hope to see many of you,
Martin on behalf of the WMF Research Team
