Abstract

The World Wide Web contains wide variety of news reports, arguments, opinions, etc. that vary widely in quality. People judge the credibility of information on the Web for decision making in daily life. At present, while the quantity of information on the Web is explosively increasing, it is necessary to develop a system that supports such judgments. We have been developing an information credibility analysis system, WISDOM that considers the viewpoints of information contents, information senders, and information appearances. In this paper, as a viewpoint of information contents, we propose a method for providing a bird's eye view of major statements on a given topic and their contradictions. We evaluate the obtained statements in our experiments, and confirm the effectiveness of our approach. Furthermore, we discuss our future objectives.
