Fake News Detection using Multilingual Evidence

Published in IEEE 7th International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics, 2020

Nowadays, misleading information spreads over the internet at an incredible speed, which can lead to irreparable consequences. As a result, it is becoming more and more essential to combat fake news, especially in the early stages of its origins. Over the past years, a lot of work has been done in this direction. However, all existed solutions have their limitations. One of the main limitations of the current approaches is that the majority of the models are focused only on one language and do not use any multilingual information. In this work, we investigate the new approach of fake news detection based on multilingual evidence. We show effectiveness of the proposed approach in a manual and an automated evaluation experiments. Paper presentation
