Verity Lite is a free news site created by the Improve the News Foundation (ITN), an apolitical American non-profit. It aims to counter misuses of artificial intelligence that have resulted in a distorted online news environment, where alternative facts often overshadow scientific truths, and fractured narratives contribute to social discord. In this sense, it aims to empower people to discover the complete and nuanced truth behind every major news story. It does this by separating facts from narratives. This even includes “nerd narratives” from the Metaculus forecasting community. Verity Lite is the more minimalistic version of the regular Verity website.
The Improve the News Foundation was founded in October 2020 as a 501c(3) non-profit organization in the United States by MIT Prof. Max Tegmark. Its team initially consisted of MIT researchers, but has since grown to include a broad group of international collaborators. The Foundation’s mission is to empower people to rise above controversies and understand the world in a nuanced way. Its vision is a world with less hate and more understanding, where societies are better endowed with reasoned compassion, constructive discourse, and well-informed decision-making.
