Functional Description

FactMinder is a browser extension targeted at online fact checkers and data journalists. It enables users to analyze web pages with entity extractors and create, in a separate panel, views to cross these annotations with background knowledge from trusted XML or RDF sources such as data sets from the Linked Open Data or governmental agencies.

FactMinder is the basis of the ANR project ContentCheck and was awarded a Google Computational Journalism Research Award in June 2015.
