Social Media Verification

Logo of REVEAL ProjectREVEAL focuses on verification technologies, tools and strategies. The project aims to aid journalists in identifying trustworthy (user generated) content on Social Networks. This includes assessing aspects such as the credibility of contributors, their reputation and influence, the quality of content items and much more.

To master these challenging research questions the project consortium consists of 11 partners. It brings together a set of complementary expertise, ranging from the legal sector (Catholic University Leuven) to the area of software development (Software AG).

The Deutsche Welle Innovation team will add its expertise in journalistic/media requirements as well as application development. It will also be involved in software testing and in dissemination activities, promoting the research project.

The project runs from November 2013 – October 2016.
