With the innovation of information and communication technology, communication software may also become a breeding ground for suspicious and fraudulent messages. Since 2020, the Ministry of Economic Affairs has developed AI digital trust forensic technology with technology projects. In the role of a third party, the Institute for Information Industry (III) utilized its AI technology to assist the robot "Aunt Mei-Yu" dedicating to suspicious information verification and launched the "Image Rumor Identification" function to strengthen the capability blocking false information and help the public expand the scope of protection against scam!
Join Hands to Fight against Scams and Suspicious Messages!
The Development Team of "Aunt Mei-Yu" and III Collectively Develop Image Rumor AI Recognition Function.
The suspicious information verification robot "Aunt Mei-Yu" is a product of Gogolook and was recently selected as a tool for identifying false regulatory information by the Central Election Commission. According to the observation of Aunt Mei-Yu, in recent years, many lawbreakers have turned suspicious messages such as scam and content farm messages into pictures with text, in an attempt to evade the defense of verification tools in the form of the buzz pictures circulating in the circles of the elderly. To combat this type of scam messages and the spread of suspicious information, Gogolook's team developing the suspicious information verification robot "Aunt Mei-Yu" has teamed up with the Information for Information Industry to launch the new "Image Rumor Identification" function, which introduces the "Multi-modal Information Comparison Technology" developed by the Institute for Information Industry to analyze the content of suspicious pictures sent by the public, and then compares it with the database of the collaborative verification platform “Cofacts”, Taiwan FactCheck Center, and "MyGoPen" to effectively decipher the suspicious information hidden in the picture!
Team leader Chen Ping-Yi of the Software Technology Institute, Institute for Information Industry (III), who participated in the development and cooperation of the case regarding Aunt Mei-Yu's new functions, explained: "When pictures are combined with sensational text, people's willingness to repost and read the suspicious information increases due to the visualization. Since people have no doubt and share it with their relatives and friends, the spread of scam and false information accelerates. “Aunt Mei-Yu” has a stable user base and verification needs in the country. We are extremely excited to help “Aunt Mei-Yu” expand the scope of scam prevention in the field of communication software, and actively participate in the ranks of the national team to fight scam!
Hsu Hsi, the developer of Aunt Mei-Yu, said: "Thanks to the contribution of the Institute for Information Industry (III), Aunt Mei-Yu can be closer to the daily needs of the public for scam prevention. From now on, as long as users share pictures with suspicious messages in Aunt Mei-Yu's chat boxes or conversation groups, Aunt Mei-Yu will be able to compare those messages with multiple databases and provide multiple verification results, dispelling people's doubts about rumors in unfamiliar pictures!”
Supported by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Institute for Information Industry (III) continues to deepen the technology development of AI digital trust forensics and increase the benefits by expanding industrial applications.
In fact, commissioned by the Department of Industrial Technology (DoIT) , Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA)in the past, the Institute for Information Industry (III) has already dedicated to the research and development of AI digital trust forensic technology. By gathering research resources from the industry and academia and conducting technical exchanges and cooperation with international organizations, III develops technologies that effectively prevent the generation, dissemination, reproduction, and attacks of various types of false information, and assists partners in the fact-checking ecosystem with technological capabilities to correct false messages.
In the future, III will invest more internal resources to consistently develop the technology in the field of AI fact-checking and deepen the identification and analysis technical skills across different types of information such as text, video, pictures, and voice to form an integrated multi-modal forensic technology solution package. Since the beginning of this year, the development team of III has extended this core technology to the automatic detection of false and illegal advertisements and e-commerce fraud messages. Playing the role of the third party, III expects to integrate fact-checking and scam prevention service professionals in different fields, create a national-level joint defense system, and bring stability to society.
