  • Join this AI for Good project that aims at combatting climate misinformation and the spread of climate-related fake news. Problem statement: most people accept climate change as real, however, they don't take action to challenge the misinformation about it.

    To solve this problem, we aim is to build a tool that would help people identify articles and posts about climate change that are not scientifically accurate or deliberately misleading. This tool (possibly in the form of a plugin or something more mobile-friendly) would be available in any browser and will flag arguments against climate change and provide the reader with scientifically reviewed facts.

    As the project moves forward, we realize how much impact it could have in fighting misinformation and greenwashing in things that we read online. So we truly need as many hands as possible to help us with different tasks from product design to building web scrapers and training an algorithm that can spot climate misinformation online...
