Fact-Checkers Are Scrambling to Fight Disinformation With AI
Bad actors use artificial intelligence to propagate falsehoods, but the same tools can be repurposed to defend the truth. Faced with this asymmetry, fact-checking organizations are building their own AI-driven tools to help automate and accelerate their work. While nearly 400 fact-checking initiatives are underway in over 100 countries, it’s an uphill battle. Fact-checkers and researchers say there is a real urgency to the search for tools to scale up and speed up their work, as generative AI increases the volume of misinformation online by automating the process of producing falsehoods.
