Exposing fake news on social media
Think about the last two years. The Covid-19 pandemic generated a panic on a worldwide scale and pushed states to take extreme decisions to save lives. In the mist of this political movement of crucial importance, a tsunami of fake news went along, imperiling and weakening actions against the pandemic.
What if the world had a simple, efficient system to distinguish fake and reliable news? A system that would allow anyone, anywhere, at any time, to navigate the seemingly indecipherable amounts of ambiguous information? An immediate, reliable tool to handle social media information? We could spare a lot of lives, a lot of violence, a lot of misunderstandings between people, and foster trust and harmony in our divided times.
This is not only a vision but a concrete possibility.
