Their new system will count the number of ‘incorrect facts’ and then rate the page according to a ‘Knowledge-based Trust Score’. Google’s brain trust explains, “A source that has few false facts is considered to be trustworthy.”How the system is designed to work is through Google’s giant army of online ‘fact-checking bots’ which gather and compile Google’s ‘knowledge’ into a massive database called a ‘Knowledge Vault’. Their software works by tapping into the Knowledge Vault – the vast store of facts that Google has pulled off the internet.

Facts the web unanimously agrees on are considered a reasonable ‘proxy’ or representation of the truth. Web pages that contain contradictory information are bumped down the rankings.There are some obvious problems here, the most fundamental of which Google and others seem to have missed. The system claims it can check ‘incorrect facts’ but cannot always determine the context in which these were presented. Also, it will not count the number of correct ‘facts’.
