Artificial Intelligence in Fake News Campaigns: A Study on the Impact of Large Language Models

In this study, researchers delved into the relationship between artificial intelligence and fake news, examining whether it serves as a friend or foe in such campaigns. Specifically, they focused on the influence of large language models in shaping the fake news phenomenon. To conduct their analysis, scientists curated an explicitly composed corpus containing thousands of randomly selected claims, all of which had been thoroughly reviewed and published by fact-checkers.
