What is Compass by Blackbird.AI?

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.

How does Compass by Blackbird.AI work?

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.
