A local start-up has made an open offer to Facebook to help sift and label fake news on the social network.

The two-month-old start-up JobTech – which provides an artificial intelligence (AI)-based job search service – posted the open letter to Facebook on Monday.
The start-up is offering to “jointly counteract misinformation”, noting that its technology is able to sift out fakes. It has already successfully applied its technology to help job seekers filter out duplicate and bogus posts.
