How bots can help fact-checkers. Bill Adair, professor of journalism at Duke University and the founder of PolitiFact, will demonstrate new apps and tools that are being used by fact-checkers as part of the Duke Tech & Check Cooperative. Some tools are finding claims to fact-check in transcripts of cable news channels. Bill will also demonstrate Share the Facts, the first voice-activated fact-checking for the Amazon Echo, and FactStream, a smartphone app that was tested during the U.S. State of the Union address in January. The tools and apps show how automation can be used to help journalists in many different ways.
