Abstract

As computers and computer networks become more sophisticated, a vast amount of information and knowledge has been accumulated and circulated on the Web. They provide people with options regarding their daily lives and are starting to have a strong influence on governmental policies and business management. However, a crucial problem is that information on the Web is not necessarily credible. It is actually very difficult for human beings to judge information credibility and even more difficult for computers. However, computers can be used to develop a system that collects, organizes and relativises information and helps human beings view information from several viewpoints and judge information credibility. This paper introduces the information credibility criteria project at the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, which aims to develop such a system, called WISDOM.
