Fake News: Determining trust in media-rich websites using semantic similarity

Our paper “Determining trust in media-rich websites using semantic similarity” published in Multimedia Tools and Applications (2012) 60:69–96 DOI 10.1007/s11042-011-0798-x,  presented a method to dynamically compute and evolve the trust level of a “not-so-trusted” website of a particular domain (e.g. politics, health, sports, economy, information technology, etc.) based on how similar its content is with a trusted website of the same domain. This ‘trust level’ in informative websites allows us to determine the trustworthiness and credibility of the factual information presented in a not-so-trusted website.
