For many, Wikipedia is almost the main source of information. However, outdated or untruthful information is often found in the online library. This problem can be solved by the development of engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. They created an artificial intelligence that can check the relevance of articles and make changes if necessary.
Given that the number of Wikipedia articles is in the millions, they are constantly in need of editing and updating. The researchers decided to shift the work on fact-checking and updating to the shoulders of artificial intelligence. The new development is able to automatically correct actual inconsistencies in articles and update information in the "people's encyclopedia".
It will be enough for editors to add unstructured sentences with new information to a special form, and the AI will independently put them in order and correct the grammar. After that, the algorithm searches for the necessary articles and replaces the outdated lines with new ones. According to the developers, in the future, the AI will be able to monitor Wikipedia completely offline in search of errors and correct them.
