author name string conversion

label author name string conversion
samples
description author name string (P2093) is meant to be a temporary solution. Eventually these should be converted to author (P50). Given their mere number, it's not easy to find which string is most in need of conversion. Papers with hundreds of authors aren't easy to edit in Wikidata
to do some tools are available to decode them, e.g. /author-disambiguator/ or an identifier based one. A report of most frequent strings could be interesting (e.g. as provided by Scholia's /missing pages, which exist, e.g., for topics, venues, organizations, authors, awards). A tool starting from a given paper could be helpful too.
