The Act Sustainable week is soon up and running, starting 15th of November. Chalmers, represented by the Information and Communications Area of Advance, invites you to a morning session with focus on automated fact-checking.</p>​<div><div>The dream of free dissemination of knowledge seems to be stranded in a swamp of tangled truth. Fake news proliferates. Digital echo chambers confirm biases. It even seems hard to agree upon basic facts. Is there hope in the battle to clean up this mess? Yes! Within the research area of information and communications technology, we try to find ways through software solutions.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>In this morning session, you will meet with two invited researchers, both developing automated fact-checking methods. The talks are followed up with a panel discussion, bringing a broader perspective on the problem. The panelists are guests from Chalmers and the University of Gothenburg, together with the keynote speakers.</div> <div><br /></div></div> <div><b><br /></b></div> <div> <div><b>Agenda:</b></div> <div>09:45 <b>Introduction</b> by <b>Erik Ström</b>, Director, Information and Communications Technology Area of Advance</div> <div>10:00 <b>Looking for the truth in the post-truth era</b> with <b>Ivan Koychev</b>, University of Sofia, Bulgaria</div> <div>10:30 <b>Computational Fact-Checking for Textual Claims</b> with <b>Paolo Papotti</b>, Associate Professor, EURECOM, France</div> <div>11:00 <b>Pause</b></div> <div>11:10 <b>Panel discussion</b>, moderator <b>Graham Kemp</b>, professor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Chalmers and researchers from ChalmersUniversity of Technology and the University of Gothenburg.</div> <div>12:00 <b>The end</b></div> <div><br /></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank" title="link to Act Sustainable website"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />Read more and register here</a>​</div> <div><br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div><br /></div></div>
