Glamour magazine tackles fake news with NLP’s help
Peter Adams, NLP’s senior vice president for educational programs, shared tips for spotting “fake news” with Glamour’s Kat Brown. “The internet has allowed anyone to create a webpage that appears to contain verified information,” he said. “Give it a name that sounds like news media – a city plus ‘Gazette’ or ‘Times’, for example – and you’re up and running.” Another tip: Assess whether the piece is preying on consumers’ emotions. Many are designed to do just that.
