Dataset Card for [Fake_News_TFG]

Dataset Summary

The GonzaloA / Fake_News_TFG Dataset repository is an English-language dataset containing just over 45k unique news articles. This articles are classified as true (1) or false (0). The current version is the first of the study the Fake News identification using Transformers models.

Supported Tasks and Leaderboards

[More Information Needed]


The dataset is code for English as generally spoken in the United States is en-US

Dataset Structure

The structure of this dataSet is composed by 40587 fields about News. This fields are composed by three types of fields; title of the news, the text or content of the news, and finally, the value of the news, who said if the new are fake (0) or true (1).

Data Instances

For each instance, there is a string for the title, a string for the article and a label to mark if it's true or false. See the CNN / Daily Mail dataset viewer to explore more examples.

{'id': '1',
'title': Palestinians switch off Christmas lights in Bethlehem in anti-Trump protest'
'text': 'RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) - Palestinians switched off Christmas lights at Jesus  traditional birthplace in Bethlehem on Wednesday night in protest at U.S. President Donald Trump s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel s capital. A Christmas tree adorned with lights outside Bethlehem s Church of the Nativity, where Christians believe Jesus was born, and another in Ramallah, next to the burial site of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, were plunged into darkness.  The Christmas tree was switched off on the order of the mayor today in protest at Trump s decision,  said Fady Ghattas, Bethlehem s municipal media officer.  He said it was unclear whether the illuminations would be turned on again before the main Christmas festivities. In a speech in Washington, Trump said he had decided to recognize Jerusalem as Israel s capital and move the U.S. embassy to the city. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Trump s move  marked the beginning of a new approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and said it was an  historic landmark . Arabs and Muslims across the Middle East condemned the U.S. decision, calling it an incendiary move in a volatile region and the European Union and United Nations also voiced alarm at the possible repercussions for any chances of reviving Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking.'

Considerations for Using the Data

This Dataset is compose for 3 types: Training phase, for training your model of NLP, validation phase, because we need to validate if the training was successful or our model has overfitting, and train phase, who count the probability and the mistakes in the model fine-tuning.
