“MetaFact’s fact-checking tool, the company says, uses natural language processing, sometimes called NLP, to help detect, monitor, and counter phony stories. The tool is meant to extend to newsrooms “the power to detect and monitor fake news in real time, sifting through all the data cacophony that is generated online””

“The MetaFact fact-checker works by analyzing the context of sentences in news stories, blogs, and social media posts. The tool then flags misinformation and bias by identifying contentious sentences through their tone — interrogative, declarative, and others. Next, the filtered content goes to journalists to bust false and fabricated claims. “Our main focus for training the tool is through making the tool understand context of the sentence rather than the wording itself,” explained Kaul.”

“a community of volunteer “Metafixers” report disinformation to MetaFact.”
