InVID at REVEAL workshop in Athens

A one-day workshop on user-generated content verification in news is organized by the REVEAL project in Athens, Greece, on September 16th, 2016.

The InVID project will be there, represented by the project coordinator Vasileios Mezaris (CERTH-ITI), Arno Scharl (webLyzard), Denis Teyssou (AFP) and Rolf Fricke (Condat). The project work, the achievements to date and the steps ahead will be presented during the InVID session of the workshop (see the full agenda of the workshop here).

More specifically, Vasileios will give an introductory presentation about the InVID project, describing its motivation through a number of use cases for UGV verification, explaining the envisaged approach, and outlining the expected outcomes. Subsequently, Arno will present the developed InVID multimodal visual analytics dashboard that can be used for finding UGV, Denis will discuss various aspects of hands-on video verification and Rolf will introduce the InVID verification application and its UI.

Demos related to the InVID multimodal visual analytics dashboard and the hands-on video verification process will be presented during the demo sessions of the workshop.

InVID at First Draft News. The InVID Project Coordinator Dr. Vasileios Mezaris from CERTH-ITI, the founder of EXO MAKINA Mr. Roger Cozien and the Innovation Manager of Deutsche Welle Mr. Jochen Spangenberg, all members of the InVID consortium, were interviewed by the Managing Editor of First Draft News Mr. Alastair Reid. The constantly increasing use of User Generated Content that is spead over social networks by media organizations, and the vital need to ensure that this content is verified for its credibility, copyright and newsworthiness was stressed by the partners of the InVID project. Trying to address these challenges the InVID consortium develops a knowledge verification platform to detect emerging stories and assess the reliability of newsworthy video files and content spread via social media.

InVID project has started

InVID project has started

We are pleased to announce that the InVID project has started on January 1st 2016. InVID is a 3-year project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 687786.

The goal of the InVID consortium is to build a platform that provides services to detect, authenticate and check the reliability and accuracy of newsworthy video files and video content spread via social media. This platform will enable novel newsroom applications for broadcasters, news agencies, web pure-players, newspapers and publishers to integrate social media content into their news output, without struggling to know if they can trust the material or how they can reach the user to ask permission for re-use. It will ensure that verified and rights-cleared video content is readily available for integration into breaking and developing news reports.
