ABSTRACT:

Spread and existence of fake news has been amplified by the advancements in internet and social media. Today, it is one of the most important problems that affects the society. Various artificial intelligence methods have been used to address the automatic detection of fake news. However, the complex and dynamic nature of news makes this task challenging. In this talk, I’m going to address some of these challenges and present an ongoing work on fake news detection by using weakly supervised learning.
