How to Fact-Check Health Information on the Internet

As a Computer Scientist and researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, it was an honor to be the keynote speaker at the online seminar conference organized by the American Corner of University of Buea in collaboration with the Integrated Health Organization.

During this session, I pointed the havoc that fake news is wreaking in people’s lives in this technological era. I showed how state-of-the-art artificial intelligence algorithms such as deep fake can be used to fabricate fake videos that are indistinguishable from the real one.

In order to educate the masses, I shared some simple techniques that anyone can apply in order to fact-check the verity of any information on the internet.
