Open Mind is web extension designed to combat fake news and political polarization, using cognitive science and machine learning.
Open Mind is a Google Chrome extension designed to combat the proliferation of fake news, and increase exposure to opposing viewpoints. It warns users of websites known to publish fake news by providing the user with a large warning screen and links to more reputable sources (the user can always click through to view the content). The user is given direct feedback on how partisan their reading patterns are, in the form of a dashboard which tracks their political browsing history. This dashboard then provides a list of recommended articles that users can read in order to balance out the perspectives and biases their reading history.
