"A diverse, interdisciplinary community committed to improving our information ecosystems and media literacy through transparent and collaborative exploration.

The proliferation of misinformation in online news and its amplification by automated feeds and social media are a growing concern.

Many solutions are being attempted, but the misinformation problem is so large that any single effort can only provide partial alleviation. Tackling it successfully will require a holistic approach, with reputation systems, fact-checking, media literacy, revenue models, and public feedback all helping to address the health of the information ecosystem."
