Political Discourse Online
Political discourse within online spaces is becoming more volatile due to misinformation and targeted advertising. This is testing the integrity of truth online and in extension the efficacy of our democratic system itself. As a result, citizens' ability to make informed decisions is compromised, violating one of the basic principles of democracy.
The future of democracy depends on having informed voters. Therefore, the electorate needs to be aware of the validity of the information they receive in the media. We developed a speculative online aggregate news platform that uses a decentralised algorithm to assess the validity of digital content.
