THE PROBLEM

The internet is a complex hall of mirrors that can hide or refract conversations happening about important news events, disguising the source of many sensitive topics. Readers and viewers can’t judge credibility when they have no idea where ideas are coming from.

OUR IDEA

Grapple uses artificial intelligence techniques to undertake some of the basic diligence used in journalism for centuries. Our bot unbundles chains of online news articles, and social media media posts, tracking similar ideas to see where they back up.

MORE INFORMATION, FASTER

Grapple is a factual safety-net, a grammar-checker for factual inconsistencies. Our browser extension won’t tell you what to believe, but it can point you to disputed statements, incomplete quotes and other speed bumps that deserve a pause of caution.
