NLP: The Digital Warrior that Battles Misinformation
October 6, 2021
With so many sources of information NLP helps AI battle misinformation through tools like stance detection, Abstractive summarization, fact-checking, sentiment analysis, and many more. Each tool allows the AI to learn something about the source text, whether it understands the point of view, the emotion, or the stance behind it. This information ultimately helps the AI fact check and determine whether the information given is true or false. Of course, it is not a perfect system, but the more information a team provides their AI, the more it learns and perfects itself. Unlike humans, the wonderful thing about AI is that it never makes the same mistake: Once it knows something, it continually improves its efficiency, which makes it a marvelous assistant for us humans.
