NLPIR SEMINAR Y2019#38
In the new semester, our Lab, Web Search Mining and Security Lab, plans to hold an academic seminar every Monday, and each time a keynote speaker will share understanding of papers on his/her related research with you.
Tomorrow’s seminar is organized as follows:
- The seminar time is 1:20.pm, Mon (November 25, 2019), at Zhongguancun Technology Park ,Building 5, 1306.
- Ilham is going to give a presentation on the paper, exBAKE: Automatic Fake News Detection Model Based on Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers (BERT) ( Applied Sciences 2019, 9, 4062 )
- The seminar will be hosted by WangGang.
Everyone interested in this topic is welcomed to join us.
exBAKE: Automatic Fake News Detection Model Based on Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers (BERT)

News currently spreads rapidly through the internet. Because fake news stories are designed to attract readers, they tend to spread faster. For most readers, detecting fake news can be challenging and such readers usually end up believing that the fake news story is fact. Because fake news can be socially problematic, a model that automatically detects such fake news is required. In this paper, we focus on data-driven automatic fake news detection methods. We first apply the Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers model (BERT) model to detect fake news by analyzing the relationship between the headline and the body text of news. To further improve performance, additional news data are gathered and used to pre-train this model. We determine that the deep-contextualizing nature of BERT is best suited for this task and improves the 0.14 F-score over older state-of-the-art models.
