NLP, Fake News and Social Media
Fake news and the propagation of problematic information facilitated by social media platforms have been at the center of both public debate and scientific research. When we scratch under the surface, we soon realize that problematic information is a complex problem since addressing it means answering questions from different domains: journalism, media economy, and social media.
This aim of this session is to provide a multi-perspective overview on the multiple challenges behind problematic information on social media, and on the available tools to tackle it. We will do so by bringing together speakers representing the different actors involved: researchers, journalists, and social media platforms.
