Misinformation Detector

Misinformation Detector is a "decentralized trust protocol" tool that tracks news credibility. The tool analyzes media content as well as how the information spreads. The tool then gives the news organization trust rankings. This fact checking tool also allows journalists and publishers to work with and be partners with the organization.

Bitpress News is a nonpartisan corporation founded in 2017 to fight misinformation in a new way. Through the combination of technology and news analysts, we aim to prevent the spread of misinformation online. We accomplish this in three steps:

1. Identifying misinformation when it occurs.
2. Fingerprinting the instance of misinformation so that it can be identified in different forms (articles, memes, tweets, videos, etc.).
3. Providing this fingerprint to platforms and consumers so they are aware when they encounter misinformation.


Aggie is an open-source social and online media aggregation tool designed specifically for monitoring events in real time. Aggie was first developed to support grassroots, youth-led monitoring of the 2011 Nigerian general elections. The tool has been used widely since then, mostly in social election monitoring efforts. Recently, interest has grown into other domains such as hate speech monitoring and disaster response.
