Football Text Quiz ⚽

What is it?

This quiz throws at you 10 football articles, more precisely match reports. Your task is to determine whether they were written by a human journalist or generated by machine.


The results will aid my master's thesis on conditional text generation. Basically this website serves as a human judgement experiment.

What should I know before I start?

A couple of things to be aware of:

Any hints?

How did you generate articles?

A pre-trained Transformer with 355M trainable parameters finetuned on BBC Sport match reports for 16000 iterations.

Feel free to take the test multiple times if you want to improve your sensitivity to fake news :)
Good luck!
