Contrasting Fake Reviews in TripAdvisor

Fake reviews are a concrete problem still a ecting the relia- bility of systems like TripAdvisor, especially in the case of few reviews, thus in the rst, most vulnerable, activity period of operators. In this work-in-progress paper, we present a model aimed to contrast this prob- lem, based on a sort of normalization of scores given by users, to take into account the level of assurance of the reviews. This is done by consid- ering two di erent dimensions, combined each other, which are the level of assurance of the identity of the review's author and the level of assur- ance of the occurrence of the evaluated experience. The paper presents a rst validation of the approach conducted on real-life data, giving us very encouraging results.
