Purposeful AI

AI can tell real news from the fake

Published on Mar 19, 2017

People who get their news from social media sites are particularly susceptible to fake news. Often times readers don't even realize that what appears on social media may not be legitimate news. It is time for large news platforms to assess the current situation, and figure out which AI-enabled security technology could best be wrapped around their proprietary, consumer-facing offerings. Not only should content providers be proactive about protecting the authenticity of information on their platforms, there is also a need to acknowledge that for IoT to succeed, they must have robust security measures in place that are powered by AI.
