Credibility Assessment and Information Quality in Government and
Jay Nunamaker, Judee Burgoon, Thomas Meservy, and Matthew Jensen
Discovering and gathering
information from multiple disparate sources, assessing the quality and
credibility of that information, and determining how and when to utilize
the information in each stream is one of the most perplexing challenges
that governments and businesses face. This symposium explores how
governments and businesses can increase the fidelity and use of
information streams. Assessing the credibility of information and
increasing the quality of information streams is critical in many venues
(e.g., law enforcement scenarios, border security, fraud investigations,
intelligence gathering, etc.). Novel research involving new methods or
insight into information gathering, situational awareness, credibility
assessment, application of deception detection technologies, and
establishing information quality is appropriate for this symposium.
Relevant Topics (non-exhaustive):
Ensuring information quality
Systems for credibility
Risk assessment and
mitigation in communication technologies
Deception and fraud
credibility assessment and information quality
Cargo, vehicle & human
identification, human intent identification
technology/systems including sensors, UAVs, and thermal imagery
