Football Transfer Rumours on Twitter: Who and What Should we Believe?

Wiliam Thomas


Supervised by Richard Booth; Moderated by Federico Cerutti

The main objectives of this project are:

1. To generate a data-set of tweets concerning football transfer rumours on Twitter and extract from it a bunch of claims of the form "user U claims player P will join team T".

2. To implement some existing algorithms to determine, at any point in time, a belief value on each statement of the form "player P will join team T" as well as a reliability value for each user making a claim.
