This is the third in a series of four virtual events presented by News Media, Digital Humanities, FAIFE, and CLM.  This event offers three speakers’ research into the concept of fake news and its impact in modern society.

Panelists are Katharina Beckh and Vishwani Gupta, presenting, “Supporting Verification of News Articles with Machine Learning Methods: Automated Search for Semantically Similar Articles.” Also presenting is Jeffrey Knapp, discussing a collaborative research paper titled, “‘It would be horrible if I printed something that wasn’t true’: Examining the Research Behaviors of Journalism Students.”  A Question and Answer session will follow the talks. 

Attendance is free, though we do request advanced registration.
