Hong Kong (29-31/10), Ayu Purwarianti (Chief Scientist of Text Prosa.ai) attended the Digital Media Asia 2019, a three-day event focusing on how the digital era influenced media practices, that was held at Ocean Park Marriott Hotel, Hong Kong. She attended as one of the speakers by presenting Prosa.ai’s solutions in automating journalism and media processes utilizing AI.
Ayu Purwarianti delivers the topic of how several issues in media and journalism can be solved, such as plagiarism and hoax, utilizing Prosa.ai’s plagiarism detector and Hoax Intel. The plagiarism detector can detect plagiarism through queries input while the hoax detector engine uses deep learning to identify whether queries are hoax or fact by analyzing and classifying news input.
Hoax Intel has been utilized in the form of a chatbot that can verify hoax known as “Chatbot Anti Hoaks”. Chatbot Anti Hoax is a collaboration between Prosa.ai with the Ministry of Communication & Information. It is now available on Telegram and Line and can be used to verify news in Bahasa Indonesia.
Another solution that Ayu introduced was text classification, an engine that can automatically classify parts in articles using AI. The engine classifies and labels articles by sentiment, topics or quotation extraction.
