Let’s stay in touch! DW Innovation moves on LinkedIn

DW Innovation moves on LinkedIn

Dear all,

we’re moving house on LinkedIn. From our old ‘persona’ profile called DW (first name) Innovation (last name) to a proper showcase page directly connected to Deutsche Welle.

We’ve announced this before and thus thought we could delete the old profile worry-free, but it turns out our message didn’t come through to many of you.

That’s a pity, because we’d really love to stay connected with you all! To exchange thoughts, findings and knowledge, share concepts on innovation in media – and maybe to help each other find that perfect new team member.

Our old profile will be deleted on March 25th. Therefore we want to make a last shout out in order to turn our ‘old connections’ into new followers:

  1. Please go to linkedin.com/showcase/dw-innovation
  2. hit that follow button…
  3. and stay in touch with us!

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!

All the best,
DW Innovation

Supporting Video Verification with InVID

The InVID research project releases a plug-in that supports journalists in verifying videos

One of the research projects in which we are involved is InVID – ‘In Video Veritas’. The project, running from 2016 until the end of 2018, deals with various aspects of video verification. This includes investigating legal aspects, supporting rights clearance processes, and above all the development and testing of tools and modules that support and part-automate the verification of videos.

Half-way into the project’s duration, the project is pleased that first results can be made available to the public and, in particular, the verification community.

REVEAL Workshop Review & Resources

On 20 Sep 2016 the REVEAL project, in which DW Innovation is heavily involved, conducted its final workshop. The full-day event was organised by the project consortium under the leadership of ATC’s iLab and DW Innovation Projects. Topic of the day: social newsgathering and verification of eyewitness media. 

Almost 90 participants attended and joined in lively discussions about challenges and approaches regarding the use and verification of social media in news. Judging by the feedback received, and following comments on Twitter under the conference hashtag #smvw16, the day turned out to be a big success!

Two keynotes speeches kick off the workshop
