  • Compass by Blackbird.AI is a powerful AI-powered tool that helps you analyze digital content that may contain misleading or inaccurate claims. It can evaluate claims in text, images, articles, social posts, images, and videos by providing informative content from trusted sources.

  • Compass by Blackbird.AI uses generative AI to work much like an expert researcher. It starts by understanding your submitted content and identifying claims needing more context to assess integrity. It then gathers background information by searching the web for information related to your submission and current events to gather as much relevant context as possible. With this background information in place, Compass by Blackbird.AI then searches for trusted news and other sources to evaluate the claims in the content. Lastly, it gives you a report contextualizing suspicious claims and a list of reference sources that inform results.

  • Compass by Blackbird.AI leverages information from web search engines. It prioritizes recent sources based on their publication dates, when such data is accessible. Following this initial assessment, Compass employs Blackbird’s dynamic domain database to evaluate the quality of domains. This database is regularly updated to reflect the extent to which sources disseminate misinformation. With Blackbird’s knowledge in combating disinformation at its core, the system eliminates sources known for spreading disinformation. Compass prioritizes sources recognized as reputable news outlets, and when relevant includes content from other platforms, such as social media. In these instances, it ensures that users are cautioned about the potentially lower reliability of these sources. This approach allows Compass to maintain a balance between quality, recency, and diversity of information, emphasizing accuracy and credibility in its source selection process.
