Full Fact

Talk Abstract: Automated Factcheckin. Factchecking is one solution to the multifaceted problems behind the catchall term ‘fake news’. Join Full Fact, the UK’s independent factchecking charity, to discuss how they plan to make factchecking dramatically more effective with technology that exists now, both here in the UK and beyond.
