. Connectivity plays an ever-increasing role in modern society, with people all around the world having easy access to rapidly disseminated information. However, a more interconnected society enables the spread of intentionally false information. To mitigate the negative impacts of fake news, it is essential to improve detection methodologies. This work introduces Multi-Policy Statement Checker (MPSC), a framework that automates fake news detection by using deep learning techniques to analyze a…

Early Detection of Fake News with Multi-source Weak Social Supervision

This work exploits multiple weak signals from different sources from user engagements with contents, and their complementary utilities to detect fake news in a meta-learning framework which estimates the quality of different weak instances.

MVAE: Multimodal Variational Autoencoder for Fake News Detection

An end-to-end network that uses a bimodal variational autoencoder coupled with a binary classifier for the task of fake news detection, which outperforms state-of-the-art methods by margins as large as ~ 6% in accuracy and ~ 5% in F1 scores.

“Liar, Liar Pants on Fire”: A New Benchmark Dataset for Fake News Detection

This paper presents liar: a new, publicly available dataset for fake news detection, and designs a novel, hybrid convolutional neural network to integrate meta-data with text to improve a text-only deep learning model.

EANN: Event Adversarial Neural Networks for Multi-Modal Fake News Detection

An end-to-end framework named Event Adversarial Neural Network (EANN), which can derive event-invariant features and thus benefit the detection of fake news on newly arrived events, is proposed.

FakeBERT: Fake news detection in social media with a BERT-based deep learning approach

A BERT-based (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) deep learning approach by combining different parallel blocks of the single-layer deep Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) having different kernel sizes and filters with the BERT, useful to handle ambiguity, which is the greatest challenge to natural language understanding.

Fake news detection using discourse segment structure analysis

The primary aim of this paper is to review existing methodologies, to propose and implement a method for automated deception detection, which uses deep learning in discourse-level structure analysis to formulate the structure that differentiates fake and real news.

SpotFake+: A Multimodal Framework for Fake News Detection via Transfer Learning (Student Abstract)

This work presents SpotFake+, a multimodal approach that leverages transfer learning to capture semantic and contextual information from the news articles and its associated images and achieves the better accuracy for fake news detection.

A Machine Learning Approach to Fake News Detection Using Knowledge Verification and Natural Language Processing

A new fluid definition of “fake news” is established in terms of relative bias and factual accuracy and a novel framework for fake news detection is devised, based on the proposed definition and using a machine learning model.

Multimodal Multi-image Fake News Detection

This paper proposes a multimodal multi-image system that combines information from different modalities in order to detect fake news posted online and significantly outperforms the BERT baseline by 4.19% and SpotFake by 5.39%.

Detecting opinion spams and fake news using text classification

A new n‐gram model to detect automatically fake contents with a particular focus on fake reviews and fake news is introduced and experiments indicate very encouraging and improved performances compared to the state‐of‐the‐art methods.
