RELEASED THE FULL VERSION OF COVID19 INFODEMIC OBSERVATORY BY FBK COMUNE LAB
The Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK), the 26th Feb. 2021 officially released the new version od the Infodemic Observatory for COVID-19, launched on March 2020.
This work has been recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) to better understand the impact of an infodemic on a global scale.
Following the WHO global conferences held on April and June 2020, the scientific community highlighted the need for evidence-based research tools to better understand, monitor and measure the infodemic phenomenon.
Based on artificial intelligence, data science and network science techniques, the Observatory provides in near real time a unique lens on the current state of misinformation and bad information spreading on the popular Twitter microblogging platform.
The computational tool, accessible to the public, is the result of an interdisciplinary collaboration, promoted by WHO, involving physicists, computer scientists, cultural economists, public health and communication experts from FBK.
