The NSF Convergence Accelerator, aligned to the Directorate for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships (TIP), builds upon NSF’s investment in basic research and discovery to accelerate solutions toward societal and economic impact. Convergence Accelerator multidisciplinary teams use convergence research fundamentals and innovation processes to stimulate innovative idea sharing and development of sustainable solutions.
Funded by the NSF Convergence Accelerator, the CommuniTies project is aligned to the program’s 2021 Cohort and Track F: Trust & Authenticity in Communication Systems.
Today’s news outlets are not always trusted as information sources by their communities. CommuniTies is changing the dialogue around distrust of media. Using an AI network science tool, CommuniTies provides actionable insights for local newsrooms to help them build digital lines of communication with their communities, preventing the spread of misinformation and disinformation.
