In Video Veritas - Verification of Social Media Video Content for the News Industry


Area: Inspiring a Digital Society (Hall X3)

Stand number: i24

The digital media revolution is bringing breaking news to online video platforms; and, news organisations often rely on user-generated recordings of breaking and developing events shared by social media to illustrate the story. However, in video there is also deception.

In today's "fake news" era, access to increasingly sophisticated editing and content management tools, and the ease with which fake information spreads in electronic networks, requires reputable news outlets to carefully verify third-party content before publishing it. Since January 2016, the InVID consortium has been working on building tools for detecting, authenticating and checking the reliability and accuracy of newsworthy video files and video content spread via social media.

Discover InVID's portfolio of mature tools that include an Analytics Dashboard, a Verification Application, and a free Verification Plugin that is already in use by more than 3000 journalists worldwide.
