The Atlantic features CS Prof. and Neukom Study of Wikipedia

The Atlantic is running a story about research coming out of Dartmouth and Duke. The authors, including our very own Prof. Daniel Rockmore, studied the verifiability of information on Wikipedia. They were interested not in Wikipedia's accuracy, but rather how easy it is for someone to determine the accuracy of an article on their own. They argue that Wikipedia, and other online information outlets, should include a "source-o-meter" on each page, reflecting the quality of the citations.
