I am working on the analysis and automatic discovery of new and useful information within user created web content. With the advent of Web 2.0 and other related technologies, there is a need to be able to assess the reliability of information which can be added from anywhere and so has no inherit trust measure. By looking at the relationships of this new content to the already existing content, and also the source of this/related content, I hope to be able to devise metrics which can help in the ranking of information.
