Arabi Facts Hub is a nonprofit organization dedicated to research mis/disinformation in the Arabic content on the Internet and provide innovative solutions to detect and identify it.

About Us

Arabi Facts Hub (AFH) is a pioneering platform dedicated to addressing the challenges posed.
by the global "infodemic" of misinformation, with a particular focus on the Arab world (the Middle East and North Africa, or MENA). We leverage AI and data analytics to analyze and experiment with data patterns on social media, focusing on Arabic content. Our innovative approach allows us to effectively counter false information, ensuring the availability of accurate and reliable news for the public.
Recognizing the lack of resources dedicated to evidence-based research and AI tools for Arabic misinformation detection, AFH seeks to create a comprehensive, multilateral database by aggregating data from Arabic fact-checking initiatives. Utilizing natural language processing techniques, our team analyzes the dataset to identify patterns affecting minority groups, public sentiment towards misinformation, and its propagation mechanisms.
Our research provides an overview of the problem and serves as a foundation for further research, including testing text classification algorithms against Arabic content. AFH also encourages public contributions to the database and disseminates information-literacy content through accessible tip lines. By making the database open-access to independent Arabic fact-checking organizations and offering training in data analysis, we amplify our impact and scale our reach within the global Arab community.
