Microsoft Operating On Dependable AI To Control False News

Alerted by the enormous spread of false news, tech behemoth Microsoft is operating tremendously on generating “dependent” algorithms to regulate fake news on its platforms such as LinkedIn (the professional networking site) and Bing Search engine.

As per Strategic Policy Advisor at Microsoft, David Heiner, the issues YouTube and Facebook are encountering with false news these days have alarmed the tech firms all over the world. And Microsoft is right on the path of generating AI (artificial intelligence)-supported systems to tackle back.

“We are already operating on a few such AI-fueled programs towards LinkedIn and Bing. We are also attempting to forge connections with dependent news sources and then alert to consumers what is the origination of the news and allowing them make their own choices,” Heiner claimed to the media in an interview at the firm’s 500-acre sprawling campus this week.

The main hurdles, as per him, are concerns associated with defining what is false news and censorship. “A very high ratio of people receives news from Google-controlled YouTube and Facebook. And both these main platforms are having issues in dealing with false news.

Microsoft lately filed a patent for a tablet-akin gadget that will come with almost 3 displays. According to the patent application filed, the supposed tablet-akin device can fold outwardly as well as inwardly. It will sport 2 main screens that will come into view when the gadget is opened up. On the other hand, there will be a small 3rd screen on the hinge as well, claimed the media in a report.

Given that it is an idea still at the patent phase, Microsoft may not or may decide to turn it into a real item. On the other hand, with ZTE already trading its foldable Axon M handset, it will not be too long before we see more makers jumping in the segment of foldable device.
