Greece to launch AI-based platform to combat fake news


In a bid to counteract the proliferation of misinformation about the nation, the ministries of Foreign Affairs and Digital Governance in Greece are reportedly planning to introduce a new digital platform which will use AI technology.

According to, the platform will aim to pinpoint false narratives that undermine the country’s interests and take necessary measures to refute it.

What is different is that the AI to be deployed not only recognizes keywords, as it did with older forms of technology, but now perceives entire meanings. This way it will be able to check the veracity of information in a more comprehensive manner.

Moreover, the government also plans to upgrade the studies at the Hellenic Diplomatic Academy, with the inclusion of technology content.

For this reason, presentations will be held at the academy regarding the use of social media and their tools, such as the ability to address a targeted audience, so embassies can communicate news and useful information to a specific target group.
