Heuristics

Real-time automated fact-checking is hard, but not impossible. There are a number of organizations such as Snopes, PolitiFact, FactCheck.org, and FullFact that aim to reduce incorrect information in mass media.

Goal

The goal of this project is to use technology to score Internet content for trustworthiness based on certain criteria. This project will be open source to allow both transparency and open discourse on the scoring model.
