Using AI to cut through online noise and source unbiased news 

Velocity alumni company Ground News launches new AI-powered news comparison tool

October 26, 2023

Seeking unbiased opinions is challenging in today’s fast-paced news cycle. Some news sources leave out important facts, inadvertently skewing public perception on current events. 

Ground News, an alumni company from Velocity, University of Waterloo’s startup incubator, is combatting this with the launch of a new tool powered by artificial intelligence. The tool will help readers quickly understand a story from multiple perspectives so they can spot media bias when they read it.  

For example, when searching for news related to the recent diplomatic dispute between India and Canada, Ground News’s AI tool summarizes key details in bullet point form, emphasizing key points across the political spectrum.

“News shapes how people think about the world and how we make important decisions. We should all have access to the same information and it’s hard to believe that that isn’t the case.”

Harleen Kaur, Ground News CEO and Co-founder
