This project will use one of a range of modern NLP and neural network techniques to look at how political bias can be detected within news articles.

The aims of this project are as follows: - To accurately detect political bias with a machine learning model - To develop a web platform in which users can find a bias score for any article online - To create a clear, easy-to-use and attractive user interface - To develop bias scores for news outlets, in order to compare them to each other - To identify which news outlets are more/less biased, and in which direction
