Satire Detector Launched

Satire Detector was officially released on April 10, 2017. It is a part of a study at Western University. If you'd like to participate, you could experiment with the tool by submitting some news pieces for us to determine whether they are satirical or legitimate news. It would greatly help us in improving our training models. We are learning how to tell the difference based on multiple examples of both kinds of news. The user interface can be accessed at
