Information Credibility Criteria Project


  • WISDOM, a web Information Analysis System,has been officially opened to the public. (August 9)


WWW enables anyone to freely publish any information to the world. As we can see from the popularity of Consumer Generated Media (CGM), growing is not only the amount but also the variety of information available on the Net. In such a situation, we face the problem of sorting out relevant and credible information from irrelevant and unreliable ones. Information Credibility Criteria Project aims at developing technology for evaluating credibility of information content on the Net. Since credibility of information largely depends on the context it is received, we do not try to provide with an absolute measure of information credibility. Rather, we approach from every aspect of information credibility in order to provide aid for users so that they can evaluate the credibility of information on their own. (Detailed information)
