Researchers at a London startup have developed a method for sampling data that users share in social networks with the ability to identify frauds.
According to Fabula AI account on LinkedIn, a startup uses the patented Geometric Deep Learning method to determine fake news with an accuracy of 93% within a few hours after its distribution.
The need for such a step is caused by the growing influx of false information that harms the public.
Fabula AI will be led by Twitter engineer Sandeep Pandey.
So excited to welcome @Fabula_AI to Cortex. We are building out ML research at Twitter in key strategic areas and graph understanding is one of them. With the Fabula team we are incredibly fortunate to bring world-class expertise in geometric deep learning. https://t.co/PRdF16CuYZ
