Fake news: it’s insidious, it’s widespread and it’s dangerous. Beyond feeding us the latest outrageous news about our favourite celebrities, fake news plays a pivotal role in our global politics and understanding of the world. In fact, in 2016, fake news related to US politics accounted for 10.6 million of the 21.5 million total Facebook shares for the year. And let’s face it, fake news shows no signs of slowing down.

As key members of the tech and AI community, Element AI believes we can all be part of the solution. So we’re throwing you all a challenge: Present a plan or create a prototype leveraging AI to solve this issue. But don’t forget – these solutions all have important societal, technological and politic impacts that need to be carefully considered.

Up for grabs? 4 hours with two world-class AI experts and a coffee date with Yoshua Bengio.
