Evaluation Measures for Relevance and Credibility in Ranked Lists [article]

Christina Lioma and Jakob Grue Simonsen and Birger Larsen
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Motivated by the above, we present two novel types of evaluation measures that are designed to measure the effectiveness of both relevance and credibility in ranked lists of retrieval results.  ...  Whereas technology is in place for filtering information according to relevance and/or credibility, no single measure currently exists for evaluating the accuracy or precision (and more generally effectiveness  ...  Empirical Evaluation The goal is to determine how good our measures are at evaluating both relevance and credibility in ranked lists.  ...

Finding Credible Information Sources in Social Networks Based on Content and Social Structure

Kevin R. Canini, Bongwon Suh, Peter L. Pirolli
2011 2011 IEEE Third Int'l Conference on Privacy, Security, Risk and Trust and 2011 IEEE Third Int'l Conference on Social Computing  
A task of primary importance for social network users is to decide whose updates to subscribe to in order to maximize the relevance, credibility, and quality of the information received.  ...  To address this problem, we conducted an experiment designed to measure the extent to which different factors in online social networks affect both explicit and implicit judgments of credibility.  ...  By combining a basic text search with a social ranking technique and topic modeling analysis, the algorithm generates a ranked list of relevant, trusted, and credible Twitter users for any given topic.  ...
