How it Works


Dispute Finder considers a claim to be disputed if a trustworthy source argues for an alternative point of view.

Viewing Arguments

If you click on a highlighted claim on a web page then Dispute Finder will display a popup dialog showing arguments for alternative points of view that you might find convincing.

Of course, different people will disagree on which arguments are trustworthy or convincing. When Dispute Finder shows you an argument, you can vote it up or down to let Dispute Finder know whether you think the argument is interesting.

At present, Dispute Finder largely ignores these votes, but a future version of Dispute Finder will use these votes to predict which arguments it should show you in the future, and which claims have evidence that is most likely to convince you they are disputed.

Adding Arguments

All arguments are contributed by Dispute Finder users. If you have read an article online that makes a good argument for or against a disputed claim then you can add it to Dispute Finder.

To add an argument to Dispute Finder, browse to the web page that contains the argument, select a representative paragraph of text to use as an excerpt, right click, and select Use as evidence from the popup menu
