In our modern world of fake news and misinformation, it can be hard to know whether the news story you are reading is real or propaganda designed to influence your opinion. However, thanks to AI we are now close to identifying how trustworthy the news in front of us really is.
To discuss this, we are joined by Garry Paxinos, CTO at NetTalk, an easy-to-setup and use, lowest cost voice over IP (VoIP) home phone service.
In addition to the work NetTALK is doing, Garry also discusses an app he has helped build called NOOZ.AI, an AI-driven news aggregator that analyzes the news using natural language processing and machine learning to empower readers to uncover bias.
In this episode, we cover:
- How NetTALK began
- What is the story behind the names NetTALK and NOOZ.AI
- How NetTALK has branched out into the maritime cruise ship industry
- How NetTALK differentiates itself from the competition
- How NOOZ.AI works to spot propaganda styles and “ghost” edits
- What’s next on the horizon for NetTALK and NOOZ.AI
