“InTruth” is a mobile application and analytical system that allows users to check facts quickly on the news they read every day. With this application, users can check news from any source that is convenient for them (messengers, social networks, online media resources). We collaborate with top gactchecking organizatons and use natural language processing and AI semantic search to find most relevant information so that the user can easily verify information. The design focuses on the user's request and allows him to check information without pushing him to leave his regular news consumption flow. The application concentrates on the USA and UK markets with a focus on young socially active Internet users. The application by itself is free and distributed through the App Store. The main source of income is contextual native advertising. Our Vision: “Help people make decisions in their lives based on facts, not fakes” Our Mission: “Use innovation technologies to help people easily recognize fakes on the information they read every day.”
