First real-time fact-checking tool to fight against the fake news and disinformation

Project description

Real-time fact checking busts fake news

With more than one in two people questioning the validity of news reports, media credibility has come under fire. The need for fact-checking has surged but the process is costly and time-consuming. Newtral is a pioneer in the field, striving to produce and distribute data-driven journalism. With more than 40 people on its staff, Newtral is the biggest professional fact-checking team in the European Union. It is aiming to become the gold standard in this challenging field, applying artificial intelligence also in semi-automatic fact-checking work. The NEWTRAL innovation will help boost Newtral's market expansion, increasing growth to about EUR 32 million and an anticipated staff expansion of more than 100 experts by 2024.
