at Online Disinformation: an Integrated View | #1 Defining and Measuring Disinformation

Automatic Detection of Fake News

Detecting fake news is an arms race, but we can use artificial intelligence to catch it. How will that work? The way that people control media and spread misinformation is evolving quickly. People creating and spreading intentionally false and misleading claims constantly try to work faster and smarter than people trying to catch and regulate this information. But there is hope! We will talk about fake news, where it comes from, how it spreads (including in Denmark), and why we need technology to catch it. We will look at some of the big data and artificial intelligence techniques we are already using to find and stop it, including natural language processing, network analysis, and deep learning.
