These days news organizations often rely on user generated recordings of (breaking) news events. However, the footage might have been manipulated in many ways (e.g. image manipulations, misleading dates or locations). News providers are confronted with the fundamental need to verify such contents and deal with it appropriately.
The InVID consortium consists of nine partners from across Europe. The main involvement of DW in the project will be on gathering and defining user requirements, the co-development and validation of a journalism application, and the dissemination (promotion) of project achievements and results. We will therefore closely cooperate with other DW units (e.g. DW's Social Media Desk) and make use of expertise gathered in related undertakings such as the REVEAL project).
InVID runs from January 2016 - December 2018.
