WorldBrain - Verifying the Internet with Science

WorldBrain - Verifying the Internet with Science

Battle scientific misinformation online

Information, communication & technology | Africa | Access to Information | Biodiversity Conservation

 

Overview

Our project’s goal is to battle scientific misinformation on the Internet by reducing the time it takes Web researchers to find and identify quality scientific content.

To do so, we are developing an open-source search-engine that lets users customize the sources (news, blogs, scholarly/governmental databases, personal browser history/bookmarks) and filter them for what the research community flags as credible.

We are a team of 10 people working on the software and are looking for seed investment of 50,000€.
