The consequences of fake news in India have been alarming, and particularly due to the way the stories spread on WhatsApp. Its end-to-end encryption makes it extremely difficult for law enforcement to intervene. The time is taken to disprove fake news is often too long for preventive action. That’s where Logically comes in. Its use of artificial intelligence (AI) will let users gauge the veracity of the news in real time, preventing knee-jerk reactions. They are hoping to launch in India by October.
They received grants from organizations, including MIT and are open to further investment partnerships with organizations that align with their mission and values in the future. In India, Logically will be ad-led because of the urgent need for a solution. For now, they are planning to make it accessible for free.
We live in a time of fake news where things are made up and manufactured.
Beware of false news it is more dangerous than ignorance!!!
