When experts agree: using non-affiliated experts to rank popular topics

Krishna Bharat, George A. Mihaila
2002 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
Our algorithm operates on a special index of "expert documents." These are a subset of the pages on the WWW identified as directories of links to non-affiliated sources on specific topics.  ...  In this paper, we propose a novel ranking scheme for popular topics that places the most authoritative pages on the query topic at the top of the ranking.  ...  When traditional algorithms based on content analysis are used to rank documents for popular queries, they cannot distinguish between authoritative and non-authoritative pages (e.g., they fail to detect  ...

Agree to Disagree: Subjective Fairness in Privacy-Restricted Decentralised Conflict Resolution

Alex Raymond, Matthew Malencia, Guilherme Paulino-Passos, Amanda Prorok
2022 Frontiers in Robotics and AI  
When an agent deliberates to resolve conflicts, limited knowledge may cause its perspective of a correct outcome to differ from the actual outcome of the conflict resolution.  ...  Under limited information, agents rely on communication to divulge some of their private (and unobservable) information to others.  ...  Inescapably, agents “agree to disagree” when compelled to concede a resource due to ulterior reasons, such as privacy preservation or time constraints.  ...

SciLens: Evaluating the Quality of Scientific News Articles Using Social Media and Scientific Literature Indicators

Panayiotis Smeros, Carlos Castillo, Karl Aberer
2019 The World Wide Web Conference on - WWW '19  
Furthermore, SciLens can also be used to produce a completely automated quality score for an article, which agrees more with expert evaluators than manual evaluations done by non-experts.  ...  According to our experiments, these indicators help non-experts evaluate more accurately the quality of a scientific news article, compared to non-experts that do not have access to these indicators.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank the external experts who helped us on the evaluation of our framework: Aina Crosas (Communication  ...

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  
Based on these results, we designed a novel method of automatically identifying and ranking social network users according to their relevance and expertise for a given topic.  ...  Our findings show a great potential for automatically identifying and ranking credible users for any given topic. † This work was completed entirely while this author was at the Palo Alto Research Center  ...  Therefore, one of the most important aspects of credibility is also of the hardest for a non-expert to gauge.  ...

When experts talk, does anyone listen? essays on the limits of expert influence on public opinion

Eric Roman Owen Merkley
This dissertation is comprised of three papers that examine other important limitations of expert influence on public opinion on topics featuring widespread expert agreement.  ...  Scholarly explanations for these observations largely focus on the tendency of citizens to selectively process information from experts in line with their ideology and values.  ...  We would hope the public uses expert consensus where and when it exists to inform their policy evaluations of related topics.  ...
