Fighting the Spread of Misinformation Online

In collaboration with DARPA, the research division of the U.S. Department of Defense, computer science and engineering Professor Tim Weninger is working to combat the spread of misinformation online.

“The scary thing about the age of social media is the speed and the scale of how information spreads. . . . This is a technology problem. Engineers helped create it, but we can also help solve it. And we must. Because the future of our democracy and our society depend on it.”
