Verification of eyewitness media is a laborious process of collecting clues and answers to specific questions in order to find out if the claim is true or fake. Julia Bayer and Ruben Bouwmeester have created a verification checklist that will help you to make informed decisions.
From 13-15 June 2016 you can meet us at Deutsche Welle’s Global Media Forum (GMF) in Bonn, Germany. We will be doing hands-on verification and demoing project outcomes over the course of the entire event. Plus: we will participate in a panel discussing various aspects of verification and user-generated content. Hope to see you there!
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.
