First Line Software and Leiden University’s Innovation Center (the Netherlands) build prototype of fake news detection system
- Published: January 19, 2018
First Line Software and the Innovation Center of Leiden University have jointly developed a fake news detection service named CredibleU. The system analyzes Twitter links and compares them with the addresses of web-sites known to be compromised. If a similarity is detected, a user will receive an automatic notification that the information he or she wants to share could be from a questionable source. They will be advised to confirm the story via other sites before sharing the news with their social networks.
