Overview

Browser extension that protects you from misinformation

fakeBlock is a cross-platform browser extension that functions like an ad-block, but for fake news. We use a neural network trained on 1.8M news articles to detect whether or not a paragraph contains misinformation, then hide the offending paragraph. You can click on a button to reveal the blocked information and open a results page with data about why our model blocked it, such as probability scores and category tags.
