New AI tool to flag fake news

Technology Inceptions

A new artificial intelligence (AI) tool, developed by researchers at the University of Waterloo could help social media networks and news organizations to flag fake news. The tool uses deep-learning AI algorithms to determine if claims made in posts or stories are supported by other posts and stories on the same subject.

Their system advances ongoing efforts to develop fully automated technology capable of detecting fake news by achieving 90 percent accuracy in a key area of research known as stance detection. Given a claim in one post or story and other posts and stories on the same subject that has been collected for comparison, the system can correctly determine if they support it or not nine out of 10 times.

That is a new benchmark for accuracy by researchers using a large dataset created for a 2017 scientific competition called the Fake News Challenge.
