Abstract

In this paper we introduce Statement Map, a project designed to help users navigate the vast amounts of information on the internet and come to informed opinions on topics of interest. It does this by mining the Web for a variety of viewpoints and presenting them to users together with supporting evidence in a way that makes it clear how the viewpoints are related. In this paper, we discuss the need to address issues of information credibility on the internet, outline the development of Statement Map generators for Japanese and English, discuss the technical issues that are being addressed, and report on the construction of the resources necessary to meet the project's goals.
