Extended Intelligence & Explainable AI

Logically believes that artificial intelligence should supplement human intelligence, not supplant it. For this relationship between humans and machines to work, we have to do away with “Computer says no” forms of AI, and develop machine learning technologies capable of not just reaching conclusions, but explaining them too. Being creatively stunted tech junkies, we’ve decided to call this “Explainable AI”.

Every feature we develop is designed to contextualise the news you read, expose misinformation and biases, and help you form your own opinions on the world around you. It’s not designed to tell you what to think, or provide analyses you can’t understand.

Our algorithms are designed to identify the accuracy and credibility of any piece of text content using a three-pronged approach:

Content

Textual analysis of news content to identify hundreds of known misinformation indicators.

Data

Examination of metadata to determine the quality, reputation and authority of content source.

Networks

Monitoring network behaviour and proliferation of content to discover problematic or suspicious patterns.

By illuminating the quality of information across these articles, Logically provides users with a transparent and insightful view that allows them to determine how trustworthy the news they read really is.

How do you fact check your fact checkers?

Our Annotation team provides high-quality and nuanced annotations based on rigorous training requirements defined by our own internal frameworks and international bodies. Logically also strives to use AI to extend human intelligence capabilities. Our diverse Content Analysis Team have been rigorously trained to detect the biases, logical fallacies and tone of coverage as well as fact-checking and verifying information. This team is responsible for training and moderating our algorithms.

Every judgment made by the annotation team is corroborated by at least two other experts and we have developed a process for learning from disagreement within the annotation team which we use to further enhance our automated systems.

We plan on making our platform and the technology powering it as transparent as possible. We are developing an ethics committee, and are enlisting the help of impartial entities to test the robustness of our platform from all ideological angles. We want to give as many people as much confidence in our platform as possible rather than keeping it clandestine.

One of our main priorities is hiring with diversity - ideologically, socially, economically, and culturally to prevent systemic and algorithmic bias.

Additionally, every judgment made by the annotation team is corroborated by at least two other experts and we have developed a process for learning from disagreement within the annotation team which we use to further enhance our automated systems.
