Claims and Memes Database

The Claims and Memes Database (CMDb) is a programmer accessible repository of fact-checked claims and debunked visual misinformation from internet repressive countries, where disinformation and social network manipulation have become key censorship strategies, in order to raise awareness of such practices and assist in countering them.

CMDb will enable human rights investigators and journalists to parse and query the connections between newsmakers, assertions, memes, and events in the world. Our matching algorithms will enable discovery of related claims and memes.
