VIS will develop and roll out to publishers the first full fledged system for assisted fact-checking directly integrated in existing content management platforms but also accessible to individuals with a relevant impact on all the news production ecosystem. Based also on existing market ready solutions, VIS will develop a newsrooms-ready product. The core of the system is its Supersearch functionality, using natural language processing technologies and Expert System’s Cogito engine to search a variety of sources, both open and proprietary, combined with social network analysis.
