Professors Jun Yang (computer science) and Bill Adair (journalism and public policy) will discuss their work in automated fact-checking. For the past five years, Jun and Bill have worked together in a variety of Bass Connections, NSF, and foundation-supported projects that have broken new ground in instant fact-checking of political speeches and debates. They'll discuss their progress and the challenges they've had.

This session is co-hosted by the Duke Center for Computational Thinking (CCT) and Duke+DataScience (+DS).
