Facebook’s controversial factchecking program is partnering with the Daily Caller, a rightwing website that has pushed misinformation and is known for pro-Trump content.

The social network said Wednesday it had added CheckYourFact.com, which is part of the Daily Caller, as one of its US media partners in an initiative that has faced growing backlash from journalists and internal problems. The collaboration was first reported by Axios.

Factcheckers in the program are tasked with debunking potential false stories on Facebook to help stop their spread, but some journalists have said the effort hasn’t been effective, and one of its major American partners, Snopes.com, cut ties earlier this year.

Für Zugang zum chinesischen Markt würde Apple „die Augen vor der eigenen Mitschuld verschließen“. Rubio hatte Apple schon nach dem Rauswurf von VPN-Apps aus dem App Store China Ende 2017 scharf kritisiert.

Artificial Intelligence Can Now Generate Amazing Images — What Does That Mean For Humans?

Turns out after they’ve been trained on enormous datasets, algorithms can not only tell what a picture is such as knowing a cat is a cat but can also generate absolutely original images. The artificial intelligence that makes this possible has matured significantly in recent years and in some applications is very proficient, but in other ways, still has a long way to go.

Huawei is ‘open’ to selling 5G chips to Apple for iPhones, marking a big shift in strategy

  • Huawei is “open” to selling its 5G chips and other silicon to rival smartphone maker Apple, the company’s founder and CEO, Ren Zhengfei, told CNBC.
