InVID presented at European Data Forum EDF 2016
InVID presented at European Data Forum EDF 2016. The European Data Forum is the EC flagship event for Big Data and Data Science. Around 800 researchers and industry practitioners met to hear about the latest trends and innovations and exchange ideas and results. InVID was present among other EU projects and researchers in a poster space in the top ring of the architecturally interesting Evoluon centre in Eindhoven, Holland. During the two days of the event in June 2016, participants came by, saw the InVID poster and asked about the project. The verification aspect proved particularly significant, as the big data community largely focuses on how to collect, analyse and visualise data but less on how to verify whether the data is valid in the first place. Building on other projects that have begun to tackle this challenge on textual and image data (e.g. PHEME, REVEAL) the goal of InVID to verify video, the most rapidly growing media type on the Web today, attracted a great deal of interest. We look forward to following up with the EDF community in coming years with InVID demos.
