WhatTheWikiFact: Fact-Checking Claims Against Wikipedia

04/16/2021 ∙ by Anton Chernyavskiy, et al. ∙ 0

The rise of Internet has made it a major source of information. Unfortunately, not all information online is true, and thus a number of fact-checking initiatives have been launched, both manual and automatic. Here, we present our contribution in this regard: WhatTheWikiFact, a system for automatic claim verification using Wikipedia. The system predicts the veracity of an input claim, and it further shows the evidence it has retrieved as part of the verification process. It shows confidence scores and a list of relevant Wikipedia articles, together with detailed information about each article, including the phrase used to retrieve it, the most relevant sentences it contains, and their stances with respect to the input claim, with associated probabilities.
