the mission

Reasonal’s mission is to create a more transparent Internet.

We employ machine-learning to determine the information integrity of any website, starting with data from Wikipedia. We call this the Reasonal Track Record. Our tools allow users to easily call on a website’s Track Record when they’re on social media or browsing the web. To date, these tools include a browser extension (Chrome and Firefox) and an instant Spot Check chatbot.

Reasonal Open Platform

The Reasonal Open Platform allows anyone, anywhere, to scrutinize and annotate content from any website. Through this open and transparent platform we empower fact-checkers, publishers and researchers to promote information integrity. The outcome is collectively building an integrity layer for the entire web. Reasonal has so far indexed more than four million websites, a number which is growing every day.

Meet the team

Reasonal’s core team consists of faculty members and alumni of Germany’s world-renowned Max Planck Society research institutes. Together, they combine experience in machine learning, scalable algorithms, human-centered AI, information propagation, large-scale data mining, and programming.
