Wikipedia has released its list of the top 25 most-viewed pages of 2023, and the results are fascinating. The number one spot went to “ChatGPT,” a large language model chatbot developed by OpenAI.

People were interested in learning more about this new technology, which can generate realistic and coherent chat conversations,” said Anusha Alikhan, chief communications officer at the Wikimedia Foundation, in an interview with CNN.

Other notable entries on the list include articles on the death of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the Indian Premier League cricket tournament, and the life of Sushant Singh Rajput, a Bollywood actor who passed away in 2020. These diverse topics highlight the wide range of interests of Wikipedia’s global audience.

India second largest source

Anusha also notes the growing influence of Indian users on the website. “India is now the second-largest source of traffic to Wikipedia, after the United States,” She said. “This is due in part to the increasing availability of internet access and the growing popularity of smartphones in India.”

“Right now we have about 4,700 active English Wikipedia volunteer editors in India,” said Alikhan. “That total puts them behind only the United States and the United Kingdom. India has… a rich media environment and information technology sector.”
