Credibility-enhanced curated database: Improving the value of curated databases


In curated databases, annotations may contain opinions different from those in sources. Moreover, annotations may contradict each other and have uncertainty. Such situations result in a natural question: "Which opinion is most likely to be correct?" In this paper, we define a credibility-enhanced curated database and propose an efficient method to accurately evaluate the correctness of sources and annotations in curated databases.
