New digital platform Factmata launches, aiming to combat harmful content online and help future-proof the internet from harmful narratives.

factmata logoOver the last few years in particular we’ve all become aware of the dangers of misinformation, particularly online. Now, a new startup has been developed which is aiming to address that very issue - a startup which we previously featured at a very early stage in its development.

Factmata is the world’s first AI-focused self-service platform tackling online misinformation at scale, launches its new digital platform to help future-proof the internet from harmful narratives. It provides insights by subscription for $300 per month per topic being analysed.

Its innovative technology assesses the level of risk harmful narratives pose to brands and identifies the influencers behind the content, enabling organisations to monitor how they emerge, grow and change over time.

It uses artificial intelligence to automatically group similar online opinions into ‘clusters’. Users can track misinformation, disinformation and false narratives that threaten to cause reputational harm, all in one easy to use dashboard.

The Factmata platform uses real-time data from across the internet as well as natural-language processing and machine learning algorithms trained to identify harmful content. The startup’s technology is set to be a one-stop provider, enabling more companies to self-serve and contribute to cleaning up the internet, while also protecting their brand and giving them more control over their narrative.

With so much misinformation and disinformation about issues, such as climate change or Covid, we have lost our ability to communicate without fueling dangerous false narratives. Poorly researched and inadequately verified content is growing, and so is society’s reliance on it as news. At Factmata, we believe in empowering everyone, including businesses themselves, to identify this kind of content faster, not just for brand safety but wider internet safety, and we must act now before it’s too late.”

PR and marketing professionals, brands and even journalists can automate the manual analysis of mentions for quicker insights and get predictions of public sentiment and market trends. Brands can receive real-time alerts of potential risks before a human can and automatically moderate user-generated content.

With user-generated content continuing to grow exponentially, social media becoming prominent in everyday lives and the metaverse set to only increase our exposure to social content, organisations need to reduce the impact of harmful narratives before they hit mainstream audiences. 

It’ll be interesting to see the hopefully positive and much-needed impact that this startup has on online misinformation.
