Fully Automated Fact-Checking by Alex Joseph

At Full Fact we have been developing technology to help increase the speed of fact-checking. Recently we have been working on a tool that can automatically fact-check claims from the UK media without any human input. This tool is capable of extracting the key information from a claim before looking up the relevant data and determining its veracity. I’ll be talking about how we combined deep learning with more traditional NLP techniques to create this cutting edge tool.
