Traditional fact checking by experts and analysts cannot keep pace with the volume of newly created information. [] Key Result Not only does our approach significantly outperform related models, we also find that the discriminative path model is easily interpretable and provides sensible reasons for the final determination.

Content Based Fake News Detection Using Knowledge Graphs
This paper proposes some novel approaches, including the B-TransE model, to detecting fake news based on news content using knowledge graphs usingknowledge graphs to address the problem of fake news detection.
Incorporating Relational Knowledge in Explainable Fake News Detection
A knowledge graph enhanced framework for effectively detecting fake news while providing relational explanation is designed and demonstrated to have significant improvement in terms of fake news detection as well as structured explainability.
ProjE: Embedding Projection for Knowledge Graph Completion
This work presents a shared variable neural network model called ProjE that fills-in missing information in a knowledge graph by learning joint embeddings of the knowledge graph’s entities and edges, and through subtle, but important, changes to the standard loss function.
Vers une vérification automatique des affirmations statistiques
The proposed PhD project takes place within the ANR project ContentCheck, and will be developed based on the interactions with the authors' partner from Le Monde, interested in developing textual and semantic tools for analyzing content shared through digital media.
Claim Consistency Checking Using Soft Logic
A novel approach to the fact-checking of natural language text, which uses a combination of all the following techniques: knowledge extraction to establish a knowledge base, logical inference for fact- checking of claims not explicitly mentioned in the text, and a re-querying approach that enables continuous learning.
Supervised ranking framework for relationship prediction in heterogeneous information networks
Experiments on DBLP data demonstrate that the proposed S-Rank framework can effectively take advantage of all the three kinds of information for relationship prediction over HINs and outperforms other well-known baseline approaches.
A Content Management Perspective on Fact-Checking
The fact checking tasks which can be performed with the help of content management technologies are identified, and the recent research works in this area are surveyed, before laying out some perspectives for the future.
Graph Neural Networks with Continual Learning for Fake News Detection from Social Media
This work uses graph neural networks to differentiate between the propagation patterns of fake and real news on social media, and proposes a method that achieves balanced performance on both existing and new datasets, by using techniques from continual learning to train GNNs incrementally.

Computational Fact Checking from Knowledge Networks
It is shown that the complexities of human fact checking can be approximated quite well by finding the shortest path between concept nodes under properly defined semantic proximity metrics on knowledge graphs.

AMIE: association rule mining under incomplete evidence in ontological knowledge bases
This paper develops a rule mining model that is explicitly tailored to support the open world assumption (OWA), and is inspired by association rule mining and introduces a novel measure for confidence.
A new status index derived from sociometric analysis
A new method of computation which takes into account who chooses as well as how many choose is presented, which introduces the concept of attenuation in influence transmitted through intermediaries.
Topic-sensitive PageRank
A set of PageRank vectors are proposed, biased using a set of representative topics, to capture more accurately the notion of importance with respect to a particular topic, and are shown to generate more accurate rankings than with a single, generic PageRank vector.
