Description

This paper examines the automation of editorial curation of online news and blog articles based on reader ratings. Websites usually provide no guidelines on how to evaluate and rate articles; the NewsTrust project explores how doing so could improve rating precision. Building on and expanding from existing, but incomplete, research, I describe simulations of article comparison to determine how many reader ratings are necessary to distinguish between articles.
