SEMANTIC ANALYSIS

The results of our semantic analysis are shown below using the website's language.

They are the main concepts covered by votesmart.org.

Each concept has a confidence score. The higher it is, the more important the topic is relative to the page.

Topics
Information Confidence: 70% Arrow up

Information is that which informs.

In other words, it is the answer to a question of some kind.

It is thus related to data and knowledge, as data represents values attributed to parameters, and knowledge signifies understanding of real things or abstract concepts.

As it regards data, the information's existence is not necessarily coupled to an observer (it exists beyond an event horizon, for example), while in the case of knowledge, the information requires a cognitive observer.

Voting Confidence: 69% Arrow up

Voting is a method for a group such as a meeting or an electorate to make a decision or express an opinion, usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns.

Democracies elect holders of high office by voting.

Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called "constituents", and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called "voters".

Bias Confidence: 69% Arrow up

Bias is an inclination or outlook to present or hold a partial perspective, often accompanied by a refusal to consider the possible merits of alternative points of view.

Biases can be learned implicitly within cultural contexts.

People may develop biases toward or against an individual, an ethnic group, a nation, a religion, a social class, a political party, theoretical paradigms and ideologies within academic domains, or a species.

Biased means one-sided, lacking a neutral viewpoint, or not having an open mind.

Bias can come in many forms and is related to prejudice and intuition.

Right of self-defense Confidence: 68% Arrow up

The right of self-defense (also called, when it applies to the defense of another, alter ego defense, defense of others, defense of a third person) is the right for persons to use reasonable force or defensive force, for the purpose of defending one's own life or the lives of others, including, in certain circumstances, the use of deadly force.

Legislation Confidence: 67% Arrow
