Pheme – A lie detector for Twitter

Some say that this will be used to quell the use of twitter for the dissemination of information  related to protests and civil unrest and disobedience.

I am not saying that it is this detector that will do it if it is done at all. What we do know is cutting off access to twitter (thing middle east Arab Spring etc.) but one could well imagine that this detector could determine mobilization of peoples for peaceable assembly. also detect the truth and or trends that statically are indicators of demonstrations, In short who will say what is a lei and thus not the truth and could not the truth be vilified as a lie and quelled before the “Lie” is spread…?

You decide.

Researchers hope the project will help quickly remove false information from Twitter (Picture: Reuters)

In Greek mythology, Pheme was the personification of fame, her boon being renown, her wrath scandalous rumours.

So it is apt that she has leant her name to a new ‘lie detector’ for Twitter.

Researchers are trying to analyse the truthfulness of 140-character statements in real time, preventing scurrilous tweets from running around the world before the truth has had time to get its shoes on.

The EU-funded international team wants to enable journalists and public officials to determine a tweet’s veracity, as well as identifying Twitter accounts set up solely to disseminate false information.

Under the project, set to take at least 18 months to complete, falsified tweets will be grouped into one of four categories: speculation, controversy, misinformation and disinformation.

‘People do believe things they hear on the internet,’ University of Sheffield lead researcher Kalina Bontcheva told the Daily Telegraph.

‘In critical situations, you can instead show reliable information or alert the authorities before things get out of hand.’
