2 college students built a tool to fight fake news on Facebook using artificial intelligence

  • In late April, the two computer science majors built a Facebook Messenger bot that, when fed a link, will tell you whether the article in question is or isn’t “fake news.”
  • Bhat, who has built civic tech tools before in his spare time, thought that perhaps they could use machine learning to build a bot that would help put articles people find on Facebook in context.
  • To teach the algorithm to recognize right-leaning content they fed it thousands of articles from Breitbart, a hyperconservative news website.
  • NewsBot has also begun offering short news summaries of top articles.
  • Right now you can mark an article as fake news from a small drop down at the top, but if you’re a user just scrolling, the feed hasn’t really changed in any way.

This could change how you read the news.

Google’s AI Powered algorithm

Google's AI Powered algorithm #deeplearning

  • After training, the system could take a large amount of data and identify the short snippet from it that answered the question at hand.
  • While the question/answer tech may seem simple enough, it’s actually a complex development rooted in Google’s powerful deep neural networks.

  • Today, if you ask the Google search engine on your desktop a question like “How big is the Milky Way,” you’ll no longer just get a list of links where you could find the answer – you’ll get the answer: “100,000 light years.”
  • The networks are a form of artificial intelligence that aims to mimic how human brains work, relating together bits of information to comprehend data and predict patterns.
