FAKESPEAK – When New York Times journalist Jayson Blair wrote both true and false stories, his left specific language traces that lingvists like Susanne Alvestad can detect. Likewise, computer scientist Özlem Özgöbek can use these data to develop operational tools for CMS. Cooperating internationally, Silje and Özlem have support from NRK, both the Norwegian and Swedish News Agencies as well as Faktisk.no to do similar investigate work in Scandinavian languages and develop tools for disinformation detection. In their talk at NODA, titled Fakespeak – the language of fake news, lingvist Silje and computer scientist Özlem will discuss how and why linguistics may be a key to the detection of fake news and other kinds of disinformation.
