Thailand launches anti-fake news centre amid censorship concerns

(CNA) – Thailand’s anti-fake news centre has been launched, amid concerns about censorship. The centre uses artificial intelligence and trained human monitors to flag posts. There are officers 24/7 monitoring and receiving complaints about fake news. But, critics are worried the government-run facility could act without oversight and impartiality. Thai authorities have ramped up cyber surveillance in the past 10 years, mostly targeting online posts deemed insulting to the monarchy.
