Builders: 3 principles ot build, open x 3, we want to build in the most sustainable way for the community
Consumers: Our goal is to provide tools that are helpful around the world. If you think this tech could be useful to you, let us know.
What we’re not going to do is not waste anyones time with tools that aren’t useful, We won’t be making anything public till we know it meets and exceeds public expectation We are aware of the complexity but we will be openly evaluating these tools, so when they’re ready we will be reaching out.

“Live factchecking is notoriously difficult but by
working with Full Fact we were able to scrutinise
the politicians claims and counterclaims, properly”

"I think I need you sitting beside me every time I
interview a politician"
Iain Dale, LBC
Live is a live factchecking tool. It
identifies claims in real time, and
provides short verdicts or data for
journalists and factcheckers.
1. Uses factcheckers databases to correct
misinformation in real-time
2. Uses primary source data (eg. ONS) to
synthesise factchecks in real-time
Trends is a monitoring tool that
allows factcheckers to see who is
repeating inaccurate information,
and allows them to target their work
and corrections for maximum
We are building the pipes and sewers
for the community to build on
