Scientists from the University of California at Davis have developed an algorithm that can check rumors on the Internet.
The preprint of the article is available on the ArXiv website, the "Indicator" is written about the development.
The algorithm looks for similar messages on different sites and languages, while paying attention to photos and videos. As a result, each information guide is represented in the program as a 300-dimensional vector. It indicates which platforms, when and how this or that message appeared.
The authors trained a program of 453,000 news pairs in English and Chinese. For this, messages like what recently spread on Twitter were used: in Arkansas, a fish-pig was caught.
In the future, the program can not only filter out fakes, but also explain why one message or another can not be trusted.
