More intermediate Results from our Fact Ranking Challenge

Fact Ranking Challenge
Again, here is an update about our currently gathered data about our fact ranking experiment.

We started the original challenge about 5 weeks ago and now are able to present you some more intermediate results [1]. Nevertheless, the challenge is still running. Therefore, please distribute, participate, advertise, and help us to generate a fully fledged ground truth for fact ranking [2]. All data will be made publicly available for further research.

To determine the importance of a fact is of utmost importance, if you want to properly understand the content of information. Usually, you have a rich variety of possible interpretations of information. To determine the proper interpretation, you are going to use the context, i.e. further available information. So, the question develops from "what is important?" to "what is important with regard of this specific context?".
