An alternate version of Wikipedia describing an alternate universe


Wikibabel is an alternate universe closely resembling our own. It is generated using machine learning with a recursive neural network (RNN) that is trained on a data dump of the Wikipedia corpus.

Wikibabel an online platform that is aesthetically similar to the Wikipedia we know, but instead contains the footprint of a vaguely familiar universe with its own geography, political systems, celebrities and cultural events. Is that uncertain familiarity due to the excitement of discovering the lives of new people, or because despite reshuffling the deck, the biases and shortcomings of our civilization are cast in a new light?
