Computer scientists develop an AI system that automatically rewrites outdated sentences in Wikipedia articles while 'maintaining a human tone'

AI system compares a Wikipedia sentence with new data in a 'claim' sentence

This pair is flagged as either agree, disagree or neutral by the algorithm

If it is considered to disagree then the false words or numbers are substituted

A computer system has been developed that scans through a Wikipedia article and locates, checks, and corrects any factual errors automatically.

This AI-powered system can keep sentences up to date and save human editors the hassle, while maintaining a human tone in the writing.

The technology was created at MIT and would allow for efficient and accurate updates to Wikipedia's 52 million articles.
