AI-powered software can be a helpful research tool. This is the hope of former journalist and author Maria Amelie, CEO and co-founder of Factiverse. This AI-powered browser add-on (try the prototype) fact-checks claims for journalists. Use the search bar to check specific claims or create a profile to fact-check an entire article. The source data is culled from the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN). Amelie’s experience in journalism motivated her to develop the product.

“Journalists are spending hours on research to avoid making mistakes. There’s a great deal of pressure on newsrooms to deliver many articles and to be fast. But there’s so much content that they need to review — millions and millions — so our task is to make some of that easier,” said Amelie.
