"Fake News Detector" wins top prize at HackBU 2018

February 12, 2018 - Orlaith Mccaffrey

Twenty-four hours. An unlimited supply of coffee. Laptops. The desire to create a functional website or app.

These were the resources student coders had at the fifth annual HackBU held on Feb. 10 and 11 at Binghamton University's Innovative Technologies Complex (ITC). Over 250 students registered for the 24-hour event, representing schools including Stony Brook and Cornell.

The top award went to the "Fake News Detector" created by BU students Colin Fiutak, Kerry O'Neill, Hayden Brown and Gabriel Steinberg. The program uses a combination of Python and HTML to analyze news articles and an algorithm labels the articles as "real news" or "fake news."

"With the 2018 midterm elections approaching and fake news continuing to be a prominent issue in society, we set out to develop a method of automatically detecting and labeling fake news," the team wrote in their project description.

Coders competed in categories including Best Design, Best Mobile Hack, Funniest Hack and Most Viable Business. Other winning projects included a platform that encourages the crowdfunding of community projects and a computer game aiming to bring attention to sexism in the technology industry.

Erik Langert, a graduate student in computer science who has helped direct HackBU since its inaugural event in 2014, said that while the competition is a main part of the event, the opportunity for students to learn from their peers is paramount.

"I've always wanted to keep this less about the competition and more about the learning and empowerment aspect of it," Langert said. "Ideally, everyone just comes and wants to build something cool and some of the exceptional and hardworking people get recognized for it."

Langert said HackBU has grown in popularity since the first hackathon.

"We definitely have a following now ― it's almost like brand-name recognition at this point," he said. Once you host an event like this a few times and once people know what you're about, it's a lot easier."

HackBU refers not just to the competition held every spring semester, but to the student group that hosts coding workshops to develop members' programming skills. Tech companies including Citi, Bloomberg and AIS served as sponsors for the event, and representatives from each attended to speak with students.

Max Slocum, who graduated from Binghamton University last May with a degree in computer science, now works at Assured Information Security, Inc. (AIS) as a software engineer. Slocum said BU has a record of producing capable programmers.

"We actually have a lot of employees who graduated from Binghamton ― not just recent graduates, but even older graduates," he said. "We always end up finding good people from here and it's kind of cool to give back."

AIS is a cybersecurity provider for customers ranging from the federal government to private businesses. Slocum said ideal candidates are students to whom problem solving comes naturally.

"We want people who ask a question, take initiative to figure out why something works a certain way and then play around with it," Slocum said.

Langert, the graduate student, said the combination of passionate students and tech-focused employers created a unique environment for networking.

"It's a great opportunity for students to come and show off the power of Binghamton computer science and the Binghamton University community," Langert said.
