Factmata is built upon cutting-edge academic research in natural language processing and information retrieval. We are launching a state-of-the-art fact-checking system using machine intelligence, for statistical claims made in digital media content, such as news articles and political speech transcripts.
Our first goal is to make fact-checking more automated, more fun and easier. We want to build a product that engages people in the process of correcting news articles, identifying fallible claims, and supporting more accurate information on the web.
We hope to apply state of the art artificial intelligence to broader misinformation problems that exist on the web. This includes automated systems for detecting fake news, tracking rumours and hoaxes, tracking promises and many more. We believe that misinformation leads to mistrust, and this leads to broader social and political problems.
Our mission is to protect people from misleading information they are exposed to on a daily basis, and empower them to not take anything for granted.
