Google To Invest $300 Million To Fight Fake News
In recent times, fake news has grown and evolved, being increasingly distributed through the internet.
After the social network giant Facebook announced its measures to combat this type of news, it is time for the tech giant Google to also strengthen its measures.
In recent years, it has grown up on the internet, focusing on social networking, a trend for the spread of fake news. This type of content, in addition to being false, easily deceives the most inattentive readers and generates a wave of disinformation that has become worrying.
Although this is a bad present on the internet in general, it has an aggravated effect on social networks since, with the sharing system, it quickly propagates itself causing several people to take it for granted.
To try to solve these problems, the social network giant Facebook has recently announced measures to combat this type of news, hoping to bring more credibility to those who produce quality content.
Following the actions of the social network, the tech giant Google is also preparing to bet on this area with an investment of 300 million dollars.
Google invests 300 million dollars in fighting false news
Although the focus of this type of news spread is on social networks, the truth is that the tech giant Google has also faced problems with this content.
According to the American giant, the distinction between true and false news is increasingly difficult and the tools they use today are no longer enough.
In order to adapt to the new requirements, the tech giant Google will invest 300 million dollars in 3 years with the creation of the Google News Initiative (GNI). This project aims to combat the creation and propagation of false news, as well as highlighting the type of online publications that present relevant and true content.
In addition to global monitoring, this project will leave Disinfo LAB, an attempt to counter false news during the relevant election or news periods, and MediaWise, a project to increase the literacy of younger users.
To carry out this project, the tech giant Google will work with Harvard University, Poynter Institute, Stanford University and local media associations.
With this announcement, the tech giant Google joins other companies that already combat this type of news, hoping to eliminate the spread of false messages.
