The starting point
As the World Health Organization recalled, together with the Coronavirus pandemic we are as well experiencing an infodemic: an excessive dissemination of news that is false, misleading or comes from unreliable sources.
For several years we all have been hearing about the possibilities that artificial intelligence could offer to the fact-checking world. Vera is one of the first experiments in this field and the decision to focus on the Covid-19 emergency was brought precisely by the desire to test the effectiveness of this innovative technology in battling disinformation in a context of real need.
