DeFacto (Deep Fact Validation)

Build Status Join the chat at https://gitter.im/AKSW/DeFacto

DeFacto is an algorithm for validating statements by finding confirming sources for it on the web. It takes a statement (such as “Jamaica Inn was directed by Alfred Hitchcock”) as input and then tries to find evidence for the truth of that statement by searching for information in the web (more information). Check out our demo.
