Mina Schütz wrote her master thesis under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Kawa Nazemi and Prof. Dr. Melanie Siegel toward “Detection and Identification of Fake News: Binary Content Classification with a Pre-Trained Language Model” at Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT), Center for Digital Safety & Security in Vienna. During her work, she could successfully conceptualize and develop a system that enables the classification of news with a high probability as fake or real on the basis of Artificial Intelligence algorithm. The work is a great product of scientific and empirical acting and will be published in the scientific world soon.
