Wikipedia is missing images, and its images are missing captions. With the @Wikipedia Image/Caption Competition we are inviting everyone to help us address this gap! And we are releasing a dataset of millions of images from Wikipedia articles in 100+languages! I am SO excited😍 twitter.com/wikimediatech/stat
