Because We're All Out Of Ideas


What Is ‘Fake Fake News’?

Fake Fake News (or FFN abbreviated) publishes A.I. generated satire news articles. This means that any and all articles on this website are not meant to represent any sort of truth or reflect any personal views. They merely serve as educational samples to study text generation by artificial intelligence algorithms or simply as entertainment just like any other satire news articles.

How Are The Articles Generated?

The articles are generated by a GPT-2 language model finetuned on a dataset of 'The Onion' articles, some dating all the way back to the year 2002.
You can learn more about how the GPT-2 languange model was created and works here.
Another great tool to explore the capabilities of these language models can be found here.

Who made this website?

This website is a collaborative project between two computer-science students at KU Leuven, in Belgium.

How can I get regular breaking fake news updates?
