Do you find the news experience frustrating? News outlets that were respected in the past are now increasingly partisan and biased. That’s led to thousands of new sources, but it’s hard to know which ones to trust. When you finally find an article you want to read, you’re often asked to buy a full subscription just to read that one article.
Arjun Moorthy and his team had those same frustrations, so they decided to apply their skills gained at Stanford, IIT Madras, and Waterloo to solve this problem close to their hearts and help the world to love reading news again. They believe that the best news enlightens us, brings us together, and improves our communities. But can they do that with technology and eliminate bias?
Arjun joins me on Tech Talks Daily to share how they are helping people get the most credible stories on critical trending news topics. The Factual analyzes the credibility of over 20,000 stories every day on dimensions such as diversity of references, neutral tone of writing, author expertise on the topic, and historical site scores.
