Subject Claim Enlightenment in the context of Fact-Checking
Abstract Fact checking has become increasingly common in political journalism. It is the act of asserting the correctness of factual claims. During this last years, the sense of Fact-Checking was extended to designate all actions that estimates the veracity/quality of a claim announced in the public arena (by a politician, an entrepreneur ..). The thesis topic focus on the problem of enlightening a claim in different perspectives, knowing that multiple enlightenments can be necessary to properly assert the veracity of a claim (Examples: redo the math, disambiguation of claim, contextualization...). More precisely, the objective of this thesis is to provide a tool that automatize some tasks of fact checking/lead finding which rely on the verification of claims against facts reported in databases. Data mining offer an interesting variety of tools - such as Pattern Mining, Subgroup Discovery, Exceptional Model Mining - which allows to efficiently interrogate data to provide insightful results.
