FACTMATA: Building a quality media ecosystem
FACTMATA uses artificial intelligence, fact-checking communities, and expert knowledge to build a better media ecosystem.
Hate speech and abuse; politically biased content and outright propaganda; fake news networks; spoof websites; extreme clickbait: the torrent of harmful, misleading, and false information online corrodes democracy and free, informed debate, and undermines trust in the validity of the web.
FACTMATA uses artificial intelligence, fact-checking communities, and expert knowledge to weed out fake news, hate speech, propaganda, and clickbait. In 2018, they plan to launch a news platform, dedicated to helping journalists, researchers and domain experts reach and inform the public. The London-based start-up’s ultimate goal is to be able to provide a real time quality and credibility score to any piece of content on the web.
