The goal of the three years long project is the creation of new mechanisms for supporting users in the evaluation of Web content credibility and improvement of the quality of Web content credibility evaluation. Our society increasingly relies on the vast amount of information available on the Internet (and the WWW in particular). As a consequence, the issue of judging or evaluating the credibility of this information becomes of crucial importance. Thus, algorithms and mechanisms for the assessment of credibility of Web content can have a great, positive social impact.
The project is in collaboration with Polish-Japanese Institute of Information Technology (PJIIT), Warsaw, Poland, and is funded by the Swiss contribution to the enlarged European Union.
