Can AI Save Journalism From Fake News? Not Yet, But These Tools Can Help
Fake news has become a serious issue in today’s world, and it is challenging to differentiate between the fact and fiction. Technology, particularly artificial intelligence (AI), has emerged as a tool that can help fight against misinformation. Large language models, such as GPT-4, have opened up possibilities to create AI tools to fact-check information, such as AI Fact Checker, Google’s Fact Check Tools, Full Fact, FactInsect, Fact Protocol, and Microsoft’s AI-powered browser and search engine. Microsoft’s new Bing with GPT-4 can provide up-to-date information and links to reliable sources and assist in verifying facts. However, AI has its limitations, including training on flawed models, AI hallucinations, and susceptibility to manipulation. Researchers have raised concerns about AI’s vulnerability to poisoning attacks, particularly in models that rely on human interaction or subject to a central entity. Despite these limitations, AI remains a valuable tool in the fight against and verification of misinformation.
