How can natural language processing methods fill this gap and help to automatically check facts?

  • 14.15-15.00 – Talk by Isabelle Augenstein
  • 15.00-15.15 – Q&A
  • 15.15-16.00 – More talk and network for those who haven’t had enough

About the talk

Spreading of mis- and disinformation is growing and is having a big impact on interpersonal communications, politics and even science. Traditional methods, e.g. manual fact-checking by reporters cannot keep up with the growth of information. On the other hand, there has been much progress in natural language processing recently, partly due to the resurgence of neural methods.

At this Datalab Meetup we’ll explore different ways to frame fact checking and detail our ongoing work on learning to encode documents for automated fact checking, as well as describe future challenges.

Sign up

Everyone can come and join this talk. Are you from another company or organisation outside of Aarhus University, you should sign up for the event.

Then we can make sure to put enough coffee on.
