Project synopsis: Politicians are full of hot air. Wouldnt it be neat if we could call BS on them in real time?
The ultimate goal of the project is real-time voice based fact checking. Politico JoeBlo says "When I get elected as benevolent dictator of the universe, everyone shall have a kitten!" JoeBlo's statement is analyzed and then checked against an online database. During the course of a speech or debate many more statements are collected, ultimately displayed below, color coded to how true (green) or false (red) they are. Of course few things are so black and white (eh-hem, green and red) so statements that fall in the middle are yellow or orange. Double clicking on a statement takes you to the fact check database to read all about it. The dataset used for this example is the 2012 US presidential debates
Usage: Double-click statements to pull up the relevant article from Politifact.
