Funding for a 3-year, interdisciplinary research project granted

The Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften has awarded our group a 3-year research grant for our joint project with Jun.-Prof. Dr. Karsten Donnay: „Fake News and Collective Decision Making: Rapid Automated Assessment of Media Bias“

The project aims to automatically identify specific instances of media bias, thus ultimately helping news consumers to more effectively and efficiently become aware of media bias in news coverage. The interdisciplinary research will be conducted in collaboration with Dr. Karsten Donnay, Jun.-Prof. for Computational Social Sciences at the University of Konstanz.
