I`m searching for a grant, a fellowship or even a job so that I can work on some of this initiatives that I have,
and that I consider that are useful tools for journalists from all around the world.

Some of the projects that I did until now are :

Scrapping Facebook, identifying fake viral news, before they go viral
Explanation of how the system works

Example of one fake news that was detected

Extracting timeline data about any topic on Facebook.
Example : analyzing Protest trends in Romania from 2012 to 2017, using facebook data

This can be also applied to fb comments, identifying trolls, etc
#GIJC17 Presenting ACTFOIA — a new tool for journalist, civic activists that are fighting corruption.
How to use Freedom of information law (FOI law) as a anti-corruption tool in any country.

Another project that I did in the was scraping the whole medium.com website

And after that I started doing articles about different categories and tags
