Logically’s fact-checking team advises governments on how to combat harmful online misinformation and deliberate disinformation by leveraging its state-of-the-art intelligence platform. The AI-based platform (Logically Intelligence) detects, analyzes and classifies such information – and hosts a series of countermeasures to tackle problematic content, including priority flags, takedown notices and deep-dive investigative reports. By improving civil society discourse and protecting democratic debate, the UN Sustainable Development Goals impacted by this solution is SDG16 (“Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions”).

As announced in previous articles, the IRCAI Scientific Program Committees and the IRCAI Scientific Journal Editorial Board have completed their review of the submitted Global Top 100 projects. 10 solutions were ranked as “outstanding projects” based on the centrality of AI, potential impact on relevant SDG(s), demonstration of potential in the completed work (either a proof of concept or completed research paper ), and ethical design. The aim of this article is to introduce the project to relevant stakeholders and the broader public, and to make the voices of the team behind Logically Intelligence heard on the world stage.

“The Internet can be a confusing place,” says Logically. Sharing information and opinions is easier today than ever before, but “with that ease, the line between the two is blurring.” As for the United States, Logically Intelligence detected more than 3,425,102 pieces of high-threat content from January 2020 to February 2021, including 1,748,787 during the September-November election period.

This has prompted Logically to develop an intelligence platform that can analyze, classify and detect damaging activity in the online media landscape. The platform is based on “cutting-edge AI and secure, scalable cloud infrastructure” and provides a solution for identifying problematic content. At the same time, it integrates a set of countermeasures that serve the purpose of tackling such content – such as priority flags, takedown notifications to platforms, and in-depth investigative reports on high-priority issues identified by the systems.

As countries around the world increasingly feel the downside of misinformation or disinformation (e.g., doubts about election results, low vaccination rates, violent protests), the platform has already been used by various governments and public institutions.

Presenting the Global Top 100 outstanding projects: Artificial Intelligence-Based Referral System for Patients With Diabetic Retinopathy in Jalisco

This project provides an inspiring example of an AI-based referral system for patients with diabetic retinopathy. Aware of the high prevalence of diabetes and a shortage of ophthalmologists and eye illness detections services in the Mexican State of Jalisco, the founding members of this
project developed an AI model based on deep convolutional neural networks (DCNN) to enable a timelier detection of Diabetic Retinopathy in people’s eyes. The trained models preprocess and evaluate the suitability and quality and classify relevant ocular documentation with an exceptional specificity and sensitivity on local data.

MALENA is an NLP-based ESG analyst tool enabling investors to quickly review ESG texts developed by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to make SDG-integrated investments in emerging markets. The tool is able to identify more than 1,200 ESG risk terms, then performs a sentiment analysis to assign positive, negative or neutral sentiment to the risk terms, depending on the context.
