Google's latest announcement on the Digital News Initiative describes another round of funding of 20 million, now at 94 million. It seems interest in fact checking services seems to be on the rise, too, with machine learning being popular.

Some of you may remember an earlier announcement, Google Funds Automated News Story Software [webmasterworld.com]
In this fourth round, we received 685 project submissions from 29 countries. Of the 102 projects funded today, 47 are prototypes (early stage projects requiring up to 50,000 of funding), 33 are medium-sized projects (requiring up to 300,000 of funding) and 22 are large projects (requiring up to 1 million of funding).
