QCRI Presents an Overview of the CLEF-2018 CheckThat! Lab: Automatic Identification and Verification of Political Claims
We are pleased to announce the CLEF-2018 CheckThat! Lab, a collaborative research project focusing on automated fact-checking in political debates. The lab, described in detail at https://github.com/clef2018-factchecking/clef2018-factchecking , invites researchers to develop algorithms for detecting false claims in a text. CheckThat! Lab aims to address the growing issue of misinformation in today’s digital world.
