Improving Fake News Detection by Using an Entity-enhanced Framework to Fuse Diverse Multimodal Clues
Peng Qi, Juan Cao, Xirong Li, Huan Liu, Qiang Sheng, Xiaoyue Mi, Qin He, Yongbiao Lv, Chenyang Guo, and Yingchao Yu
Proceedings of the 29th ACM International Conference on Multimedia (MM 2021)
Preprint / Paper (To be Available)
TL;DR: We point out three valuable text-image correlations in multimodal fake news and propose an entity-enhanced fusion framework for cross-modal correlation modeling in fake news detection.
Integrating Pattern- and Fact-based Fake News Detection via Model Preference Learning
Qiang Sheng*, Xueyao Zhang*, Juan Cao, and Lei Zhong (*:Equal Contribution)
Proceedings of the 30th ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM 2021) (Acceptance Rate:271/1251=21.7%)
Paper (To be Available)
TL;DR: We propose a graph-based model preference learning framework to separately handle the pattern and fact indicators in fake news detection.
Article Reranking by Memory-enhanced Key Sentence Matching for Detecting Previously Fact-checked Claims
Qiang Sheng, Juan Cao, Xueyao Zhang, Xirong Li, and Lei Zhong
Proceedings of the Joint Conference of the 59th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics and the 11th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing (ACL-IJCNLP 2021) (Acceptance Rate:571/2327=24.5%)
PDF / Poster / Code / Chinese Dataset / Chinese Blog 1 / Chinese Blog 2
TL;DR: We detect previously fact-checked claims by matching them against the key sentences in fact-checking articles.
Semantics-Enhanced Multi-modal Fake News Detection (语义增强的多模态虚假新闻检测)
Peng Qi, Juan Cao, and Qiang Sheng
Journal of Computer Reasearch and Development, 2021
TL;DR: We focus on the role of explicit semantics for fake news detection via visual semantic extraction and knowledge-guided multi-modal semantic interaction.
Mining Dual Emotion for Fake News Detection
Xueyao Zhang, Juan Cao, Xirong Li, Qiang Sheng, Lei Zhong, and Kai Shu
Proceedings of the 30th Web Conference (WWW 2021) (Acceptance Rate:357/1736=20.6%)
Preprint / Code / Chinese Video
TL;DR: We leverage both publisher emotion and social emotion for fake news detection.
Integrating Semantic and Structural Information with Graph Convolutional Network for Controversy Detection
Lei Zhong, Juan Cao, Qiang Sheng, Junbo Guo, and Ziang Wang
Proceedings of the 58th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL 2020) (Acceptance Rate:571/2244=25.4%)
PDF / Chinese Dataset
TL;DR: We propose a GCN-based method for post-level controversy detection. Also, we release the first Chinese dataset for this task.
Fake News and Disinformation Detection on the Internet: Recent Advances and Future Prospects (互联网虚假信息检测进展与展望)
Juan Cao, Qiang Sheng, and Peng Qi
Communications of the China Computer Federation, March 2020
Webpage Version
TL;DR: We review the recent advances of detecting fake news and disinformation and propose potential directions.
