Snakes invade casino? Ask the social-media lie detector

por Chloe Fullerton (2019-12-19)


id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> CNET Remember when a shark swam through the streets of New Jersey during Hurricane Sandy? Actually, it didn't. But wouldn't it have been handy to have been able to check the veracity of those Garden State shark reports without going through the office of Gov. Chris Christie?

fios021-160825144944-thumbnail-3.jpgAn international group of researchers funded by the EU is working on a lie detector for social media that could make it easier to separate online truth from lies and the lying liars who tell them (apologies to Al Franken).

Named Pheme after a Greek mythological figure who "pried into the affairs of mortals and gods, then repeated what she learned, starting off at first with just a dull whisper, but repeating it louder each time, until everyone knew," the system will collate a variety of data to assess in real time how likely it really is that a baby mermaid was just born in the Philippines or snakes invaded a Pennsylvania casino.

Pheme will, for example, gauge the authority of sources such as news outlets, individual journalists, alleged experts, potential eyewitnesses, 랜섬웨어 치료 and automated bots. It will take into account the histories of social-media accounts to help spot those that have spread false rumors. And it will search for sources that corroborate or deny a given piece of information and plot how conversations about the topic evolve on social networks.
