AI-Driven News and Social Credibility Tool Launches in U.S. to Identify and Combat Fake News
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In the current era of misinformation and fake news, Logically, a credible news curator rooted in artificial intelligence (AI), is making its first foray into the U.S. market – bringing credibility and confidence to news and social discourse ahead of the 2020 elections. Well established in both the UK and India, the company today launches its Chrome browser extension to fact check, analyze and evaluate the credibility of online articles and comments on social platforms. Logically is accredited by the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN).
Logically will also fact check any claim in any news soure for an individual user. Within a specific article, a user just clicks on the Logically extension icon, selects the Fact Check tab, then either selects a claim that has already populated or enters the claim manually. All fact checks returned are evidenced by at least 3 sources/URLs and are shareable to Facebook or Twitter.
With the largest fact checking team in the world, the company will currently turn individual requests within 24 hours. By mid-August, the company will introduce its automated research assistant to suggest credible evidence and prior factchecks for any user requests.
"With the ease of online publishing today, it is becoming harder for people to determine which sources are credible and which aren't, leading the way for toxic news to travel faster than truth," said Lyric Jain, founder and CEO of Logically. "Our goal is to stop the spread of misinformation by empowering people with tools that help them cope with information overload by assessing the credibility and veracity of sources. We want to ensure people see both sides of an issue by providing context, and to keep elections fair by providing facts while mitigating threats and influence operations."
How it Works
The ensemble nature of Logically's AI models differentiates it from any other misinformation or fact checking technology on the market today. Analyzing content from 100,000+ sources and 500,000+ articles per day, the company's AI leaves no stone unturned, evaluating every possible indicator of an article's accuracy, as well as the specific claims contained within the text, to inform more sophisticated conclusions than rival models. Logically analyzes the network, content and metadata to reach its conclusions.
Live in both the UK and India, the company has gained major traction in both markets over the last several years, supporting government and platform partners in both markets through 3 elections and the Covid-19 pandemic. In India, the company identified 50 thousand fake stories during the last election campaign alone.
Logically recently closed its seed round of funding from U.K.-based Mercia and XTX, bringing the company's total raise to nearly $10 million. The company will additionally be bringing its flagship fact-finding app to the U.S. market in the coming weeks, leading up to the U.S. political conventions and election.
