Truthbot is the world's first artifically intelligent automated fact checking robot. It scans Politician's twitter feeds looking for dicey facts or previously debunked statements, and automatically corrects the record by tweeting the relevant explainer article back.​​​​​​​

It uses data sourced from the ABC's FactCheck Unit, as well as from Newscorp and the Conversation. It uses deep learning to spot relevant tweets and the articles that relate to them.​​​​​​​

Parks Finder

Team Name: 
Team Red

Parks Finder is an app to make Victorian Parks more accessible to Victorians. It uses map data from Parks Vic, transport data from PTV, and Google's Machine Vision API.



Park Finder lists walking trails throughout Victoria. It uses the PTV transport API to fetch nearest buses to the trails. It uses the Google Machine Vision API to detect landmarks and fauna in photos users upload while on the trail. The data includes certain fauna found on the trail (eg seals, bandicoots, etc).


As a bit of gamification, the app awards points based on:

The aim of this project is to provide an app that will allow people to plan a day outside. 

This app will provide people with the following information:

Weather (including advice for what to wear / need of umbrella, UV index etc)
Location of parks and walking trails
Location of public toilets

Some data will be sourced from existing databases, while others will be crowdsourced. For some data we may use a combination of both methods.
