The United Nations (UN) has just unveiled a new artificial intelligence (AI) “fact-checking tool” to monitor individuals online and police their speech for so-called “misinformation,” “disinformation,” and “hate.”
The unelected globalist body is partnering with Big Tech companies and several George Soros empire-funded organizations to launch the new “automated” service.
The UN regards unapproved speech to be “online information pollution” and warns that defeating this supposed threat is a “global challenge.”
To counter alleged “disinformation” and “hate speech” online, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has launched its iVerify platform.
The global body’s “automated fact-checking tool” was developed in partnership with the United Nations International Computing Centre (UNICC), Facebook and Google-funded fact checker Meedan, the Meta-owned CrowdTangle, and the Soros-funded International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN).
The UN Development Programme said that “misinformation, disinformation, and hate speech threaten peace and security, disproportionately affecting those who are already vulnerable.”
It described the iVerify programme as an “automated fact-checking tool that can be used to identify false information and prevent and mitigate its spread.”
The AI-powered system will be provided by the UN to “national actors” to crack down on dissenting speech.
The censorship tool will provide assistance in identifying, monitoring, and responding to “threats to information integrity.”
“The support package includes digital tools, capacity building modules, partnership opportunities, and communication and outreach strategies amongst others,” the UN body said.
The automated fact-checking tool could have an imminent impact on the world, with the platform being actively used in Sierra Leone ahead of the country’s general elections on June 24th.
The U.N. said that the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ) and the Independent Radio Network (IRN) will use the tool “to strengthen national capacity to proactively identify and respond to misinformation, disinformation and hate speech.”
Through “leveraging the capabilities of artificial intelligence”, the automated system will use AI to flag “potentially false or harmful content.”
The content will then be reviewed by a team of “fact-checkers” who will be funded in part with taxpayer funds by the governments of Canada, Ireland, Iceland, and the European Union.
A so-called “fact-checker” is typically a failed left-wing journalist who targets conservatives by censoring views that differ from their own beliefs.
Misinformation, disinformation & hate speech threaten peace & security, disproportionately affecting those who are already vulnerable.

The project in Sierra Leone is also partnering with BBC Media Action, which the UN said will aid in research as well as producing social media content “aimed at fostering media literacy and heightening awareness of mis- and disinformation.”
The system will see dedicated tip lines established on WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Twitter.
However, the BBC’s own censorship unit, dubbed BBC Verify, has been accused of spreading “disinformation” itself.
The BBC has yet to respond to the allegations.
Meanwhile, details have also emerged of the UN’s plans to introduce a global digital ID system that is linked to individuals’ bank accounts, as first reported by Slay News.
The plan, which is similar to the system developed by the World Economic Forum (WEF), is outlined in three new policy briefs from the UN titled, “A Global Digital Compact, Reforms to the International Financial Architecture, and The Future of Outer Space Governance.”
The goal of the briefs is to advance UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’s “vision for the future.”
The UN describes this goal as “an open, free, secure and human-centered digital future.”
The digital future as envisaged by these groups is going to be quite the opposite of open, free, or human-centric, however.
