KRINO is an Artificial Intelligence engine that helps people to evaluate causal relations and arguments in written discourse. The software can be used for debunking fake news, checking the trustworthiness of the information needed for building complex systems (such as an aeroplane), and as an aid for human decision-making.

KRINO is like a calculator, a powerful tool people can use in situations when things are too complicated to solve by mental arithmetic. The software communicates in natural language, helping people to understand and assess specific claims or pieces of information.

The theoretical framework of KRINO combines cutting-edge research in linguistics, argumentation, and causality. The software transforms natural language into formal structures, identifies the types of arguments occurring in the text, and evaluates them based on an informational account of causality.
