Presentation Title:

  • The Myths of Our Time: Fake News




  • While the purpose of most fake news is misinformation and political propaganda, our team sees it as a new type of myth that is created by people in the age of internet identities and artificial intelligence. Seeking insights on the fear and desire hidden underneath these modified or generated stories, we use machine learning methods to generate fake articles and present them in the form of an online news blog. This paper aims to share the details of our pipeline and the techniques used for full generation of fake news, from dataset collection to presentation as a media art project on the internet.
