Title: The robustness of wikipedia pages to alien invasions
Abstract: Online collaborative environments are gaining more significance in the way that knowledge is produced nowadays. We would like to analyse the robustness of this new media to perturbations of varying magnitude. To study this, we propose to analyse the recovery rate of wikipedia pages from artificial induced lies of various sizes. The goal of this work is to relate page activity statistics (e.g. history of edits, reverts, views etc.) to the recovery profile. We hope to find which are the factors that determine the stability of a wikipedia page content
