The Truth and Trust Online conference achieved its mission to bring together people with different backgrounds, levels of seniority, origin and also from various disciplines. It covered a wide range of issues around the challenge of misinformation and the 257 participants had two days of amazing talks from people of well known companies, universities, media organizations, NGOs, such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, Microsoft, BBC, Full Fact and others.
Olga Papadopoulou from Web Media Verification (MeVer) team with Danai Tsabouraki (ATC), Zlatina Marinova (ontotext) and Carolina Scarton (USFD) were there to present our work in the WeVerify project. During the poster session, the WeVerify poster attracted people due to its focus (among others) on deep fake detection technologies which is a hot field but still rapidly evolving and not yet ready for deployment in real-world settings.
During the second day presentations, it was an honor for us that the InVID-WeVerify plugin, where our team contributes with backend services (context aggregation and analysis and image forensics), was presented by Judy King, Director of Innovation at BBC monitoring team, as a technology which is used by her team to verify video.
