French scientists have introduced an artificial intelligence-based disinformation early warning system. The system will look for fake videos, faknews and pictures that manipulate the user’s opinion. A study of scientists from the University of Notre Dame is published on the website of the institution.
Artificial intelligence will fight the increase in the number of coordinated social media campaigns to incite ethnic conflicts and impede the holding of democratic elections, the scientists said.
AI will use content-based image search using computer vision technology. Now developers are testing it on the search for political memes about current politicians and future US presidential candidates.
The smart system was trained at 2 million posts on Instagram and Twitter on the example of the elections in Indonesia in 2019, when both presidential candidates massively used social networks to misinform the population.
