Hi busy tech people.
I have an idea for a tool that can potentially make a significant dent in social media disinformation.
While there are a good number of fact checking apps / browser extensions, I am interested in tackling social media falsehoods. Platforms already automatically screen for music copyright violations - why not use the same approach for egregiously false content? With some kind of debunked-conspiracy database, a script could arguably detect and curb the next Pizzagate, no?
Now I figure it’s no cakewalk to get major tech platforms to license a script, so perhaps the best starting point would be developing a fact checking app.
I don’t have the skillset to develop this so I’d like to work with this community in creating it. Please respond or message if interested!
