Euronews launches “All Quotes” To Combat Fake News

n line with its new digital strategy around verticals, after the launch of www.livingit.com, and within the battle against ‘fake news’, Euronews launches All Quotes in partnership with Storyzy

Since January 2017, ‘All Quotes’ is an automated service using Storyzy’s natural language processing (NLP) technology.

The new vertical revolutionizes news consumption through the direct quotations of notable people and is enriched by the Quote Verifier, an essential feature to fight against fake news on social networks.

With the ‘Quote Verifier’ users can easily verify if the quotes they read are authentic or not. Enter the quote and the tool provides an instantaneous result. The quote could be authentic, incomplete or dubious.

This performance is made possible by Storyzy’s database composed of +15 million authentic quotes from the news since 2015 (enhanced by +50,000 new authentic quotes daily), and of the 96,000 quotes from notable, historical figures. All of these indexed quotes come from reputable media sources.

Already hundreds of topics have been curated for Euronews’ consumers, from the conflict in Syria to Facebook; from Brexit to Climate Change. Currently, 111,000 global experts in various fields from science to entertainment, have individual pages with their archived authentic quotes. The automated system creates on average 400 new people pages daily.

These pages are automatically generated and permanently stored and updated by Storyzy’ssystem. The A.I. program not only extracts quotes from Euronews articles, but from news articles all around the web, which are organised by speaker and occupation.  Already available in English, Euronews and Storyzy aspire to launch this initiative in other languages.

Users can see a snapshot of the service and also follow what people say in the news on the Twitter account @AllQuotes_enws.
