During November 22 – 28, 2019, we organized an autumn project meeting at Bar Ilan University, Tel Aviv, Israel. The main goal of the project meeting was to exchange information about recent research progress achieved by both project partners.
FIIT STU partner informed about the progress with Monant platform development, medical misinformation dataset preparation as well as about machine-learning-based methods, which can automatically identify the presence of medical claims in articles. During the meeting we also worked together on improvement of these methods.
BIU partner provided a detailed description of results on automatic claim veracity evaluation, which is based on analyses of medical reviews.
In addition, we had a great opportunity to meet a number of faculty members, from PhD students to professors and discuss together our and their research.
We appreciate a possibility to meet researchers from Bar Ilan University in person and participate in very interesting and useful discussions. We would like to thank you prof. Sarit Kraus for hosting us at Bar Ilan University and for great organization of such pleasant stay there.
