Here, you can read the long abstract of a paper that was presented at the SNOW 2016 workshop (Social News On the Web) by REVEALers Georgios Rizos, Yiannis Kompatsiaris and myself, Symeon Papadopoulos.
From 6-10 April 2016, the 10th edition of the International Journalism Festival took place in Perugia, Italy. REVEAL was represented by Ruben Bouwmeester and Jochen Spangenberg of the DW Innovation team. Here’s a short recap.
On 1 December 2015, we were invited to present Reveal and talk about the importance of verification of eyewitness media at the Media Literacy Expert Group Meeting of the European Commission, Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology, in Brussels.
On 16 November 2015 Markos Zampoglou of CERTH-ITI and Jochen Spangenberg of Deutsche Welle participated in the Thematic Meeting “Multimedia Truthfulness Verification in Legal Environment and Social Media”, co-located with WIFS 2015, in Rome, Italy.
From 20 – 22 October 2015 we attended the ICT 2015 in Lisbon, Portugal. We presented our first prototypes of software that aims to help both community managers (the enterprise scenario) and journalists (the journalism scenario) with semi-automated verification of Social Media content.
On 21 September 2015, REVEAL was represented in the session “News and User-Generated Content” at Prix Italia 2015. The panel discussed the impact of eyewitness media on the news business, what has changed in the past, and how to deal with respective challenges now and in the future. This provided an ideal opportunity to also showcase some of our REVEAL activities.
