Among 2023’s most viewed Wikipedia pages are Barbie, Messi, and Taylor Swift, According to the top 25 most viewed pages on Wikipedia in 2023, announced on Tuesday, there is a high level of interest worldwide in artificial intelligence research, people who have passed away this year, and the ever-increasing ability of Indian users to influence internet trends.

In 2023, Wikipedia has already had more than 84 billion page views, according to data reported by CNN, which was provided by the nonprofit Wikimedia Foundation.

The article about OpenAI’s virtual chatbot ChatGPT, which OpenAI created, was the most visited page on Wikipedia this year, with more than 49.4 million page views, due to its immense popularity. During February, ChatGPT set a record for the fastest-growing user population in the industry, with 100 million active users accumulating within the first week of the month. 

There have been a lot of technological companies that have spent billions of dollars developing competing generative AI technologies. Several related technology firms develop semiconductor chips that will fuel future advances in artificial intelligence as well as impact geopolitical connections between the world’s greatest nations in the future.

“Anusha Alikhan, the chief communications officer at the Wikimedia Foundation, said in an interview with CNN, that it was evident that people wanted to better understand the history and context of ChatGPT’s technology as they experimented with it.

In addition to this, Alikhan also mentioned that ChatGPT is trained using Wikipedia data, with Wikimedia projects being used to answer inquiries from users or provide suggestions. As a result of the chatbot’s use of Wikipedia data and content created by humans, the chatbot’s answers to its users will be influenced by these human-generated resources.

“There is no doubt that Wikipedia plays an essential role in the training of almost every large language model,” said Alikhan.

Because the foundation is a non-profit organization, she explained that OpenAI does not pay a fee for using the foundation’s content. The firm also uses this policy to explain why it does not display advertisements or track the personal information of its customers.

This was followed by biographical postings about persons who died in the year 2023, the 2023 Cricket World Cup, the Indian Premier League, a Cricket League, and the movie Oppenheimer, which also made the top five.

One-fifth of the total shares of the list were accounted for by media outlets from India and Southeast Asia, while a majority of the rest were from the rest of Asia.

There are about 4,700 active English Wikipedia volunteer editors in India at the moment, according to Alikhan. It is worth noting that the United States and the United Kingdom are the only two countries ahead of them in that total. “The Indian media environment is rich, and the sector of information and communication technology is growing rapidly.”

Considering that India is on track to replace China as the world’s most populous country by the end of the year, with a population that is expected to exceed 1.43 billion people, its effect on global media is not surprising given its rapid growth. Wikipedia is no longer accessible on the country’s internet due to a block by the Chinese government.

By the year 2020, it is estimated that the number of Internet users in India will increase from 759 million to 900 million, according to a report released by the Internet and Mobile Association of India and the market data analytics firm Kantar.

As part of the 2023 Cricket World Cup, India finished runner-up to eventual champion Australia, with top-order batsman Virat Kohli winning the player of the series award. Over 38 million page views have been recorded for the series’ Wikipedia entry.
