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.
