DC Proposal: Evaluating trustworthiness of web content using semantic web technologies
Trust plays an important part in people's decision processes for using information. This is especially true on the Web, which has less quality control for publishing information. Untrustworthy data may lead users to make wrong decisions or result in the misunderstanding of concepts. Therefore, it is important for users to have a mechanism for assessing the trustworthiness of the information they consume. Prior research focuses on policy-based and reputation-based trust. It does not take the information itself into account. In this PhD research, we focus on evaluating the trustworthiness of Web content based on available and inferred metadata that can be obtained using Semantic Web technologies. This paper discusses the vision of our PhD work and presents an approach to solve that problem.

Abstract

Trust plays an important part in people's decision processes for using information. This is especially true on the Web, which has less quality control for publishing information. Untrustworthy data may lead users to make wrong decisions or result in the misunderstanding of concepts. Therefore, it is important for users to have a mechanism for assessing the trustworthiness of the information they consume. Prior research focuses on policy-based and reputation-based trust. It does not take the information itself into account. In this PhD research, we focus on evaluating the trustworthiness of Web content based on available and inferred metadata that can be obtained using Semantic Web technologies. This paper discusses the vision of our PhD work and presents an approach to solve that problem.
