Can ChatGPT be used to detect “fake news”?


In today's digital landscape, fake news undermines academic integrity and critical thinking skills in higher education. Our research project uses Large Language Model (LLM) technology to develop ChatGPT for detecting fake news, aiming to mitigate misinformation's spread in academic and societal contexts. Our LLM-based model effectively detects misinformation across languages and scenarios. While results are promising, there's room to expand dataset diversity and refine complex pattern detection. This work highlights AI's role in enhancing information literacy and preserving academic integrity.
