How we’re using AI to scale up global fact checking

By Staff Writer

In this project, we are not attempting to replace fact checkers with AI, but to empower fact checkers with the best AI driven tools. We have developed a claim-type classifier to guide fact checkers towards claims that might be worth investigating. We are already using these tools with fact checkers on a daily basis. In South Africa an Africa Check fact check identified by our AI has informed live debate around health care choices. This is important to the fact checkers already using it and also because of the scale of our ambition.
