Full Stack Developer
WhatsApp is one of the most widely-used social media platforms in India. Information including misinformation spreads quickly on the platform. The effects can be far ranging — from changes in people’s health choices to greater social tension in communities and in extreme cases violence against individuals. Tattle aims to support and scale existing fact-checking efforts by creating channels for sourcing content from WhatsApp and other Chat App users; using machine learning to categorize and classify multilingual, multimedia content circulated on chat apps; and distributing fact checked information so that is accessible to mobile-first audience. In the process Tattle aims to enable more transparent research on misinformation in closed networks.
Tattle recently won the AI and News Open Challenge. Our team is small and cross functional; and values every team member’s input in achieving the shared vision of the company. We believe in working smarter when it comes to identifying needs and solutions and values innovation and creativity in day to day work.
