The problem

The central challenge this initiative seeks to address is the effective categorization and discernment of online content within the Mongolian digital landscape. By developing a multi-modal classification system, the project aims to harness diverse data sources — ranging from text and social features to user information and network propagation patterns. The goal is to establish a robust mechanism that can meticulously detect and categorize the vast array of content circulating online. This system strives to ensure that the digital audience in Mongolia has access to content that is accurate and reliable, thereby enhancing the overall quality and trustworthiness of information available in the Mongolian online environment.

The project goals

The project sets forth several goals aimed at enhancing the digital experience for users in Mongolia:

  • Comprehensive Content Classification: Develop a sophisticated multi-modal classification system that can effectively detect and categorize various types of online content, using a combination of text analysis, social features, user information, and network propagation patterns.
  • Enhanced Information Reliability: Ensure that the digital audience in Mongolia has access to accurate and reliable information, thereby raising the overall standard of content available online.
  • Utilization of Diverse Data Modalities: Leverage insights from multiple data sources, acknowledging the complexity of online interactions and the multifaceted nature of digital content.
  • Advanced Detection Mechanisms: Implement cutting-edge techniques for the detection and categorization of content, making the process more efficient and reliable.
  • Tailored to the Mongolian Online Environment: Customize the system to align with the specific characteristics and needs of the Mongolian digital landscape, ensuring it is highly effective and relevant in this context.

By achieving these goals, the project aims to substantially improve the digital landscape in Mongolia, offering a more reliable and high-quality online experience for users.
