High-level summary

Add Image is the infrastructure behind a feature which recommends images to be added to articles which don't have any, and provides a streamlined editing interface for doing so. It consists of:

  • A dataset (currently a one-off) of articles with no images, and image recommendations based on images in other Wikimedia projects which are connected to the article in some way via Wikidata.
  • A hasrecommendation:image CirrusSearch keyword for searching for articles with recommendations (currently based on having loaded the dataset into the search index as a one-off).
  • An image recommendation API (currently that provides the information in the dataset for the queried page IDs.
  • Integration with the structured task functionality of the GrowthExperiments extension: a browsing interface on Special:Homepage and VisualEditor-based custom editing interface.
