Watch ’n’ Check: Towards a Social Media Monitoring Tool to Assist Fact-Checking Experts


We present an ongoing collaboration between computer science researchers and fact-checking experts in a broadcast corporation to develop Watch ’n’ Check, a social media monitoring tool that assists fact-checkers to detect and target misinformation online. The lean methodology followed in our collaboration has helped us to better understand how information access tools can assist fact-checking experts. We report initial results and discuss our plan for further development, as well as the open challenges identified so far.
