Video Verification Workflow Analysis

In the EU funded InVID project we are working hard on solutions to make verification of User Generated Video (UGV) easier and more trustworthy. Right now there are only a few tools to help journalists verify the authenticity of video materials from Social Networks. InVID aims to fill that gap, providing the means with which verification of UGV becomes easier and therefore allows journalists to use (more) trustworthy UGV in their reporting.

Time is passing quickly and YourDataStories (YDS), our research project on making #opendata more accessible and transparent, is already beyond the first year of its three years project duration.

As projects go, the first year was full of first steps: Setting up the consortium, creating the necessary project structures and communication lines as well as establishing a basis for the actual development.

Scalable Understanding of Multilingual MediA

SummaLogoFinalSUMMA is an ambitious research and innovation project aimed at media monitoring, with a close collaboration between Deutsche Welle and the BBC. Through language technologies such as speech-to-text (automated transcription), machine translation, topic detection and summarization, the SUMMA platform will help media professionals, amongst others, to monitor and analyze news more efficiently.

The project will capture incoming news streams in eight languages, analyze and compare the data, and provide an overview of leading topics and trends with summaries in English. The University of Edinburgh is leading the project, consisting of eight partners.
The consortium is aiming at jointly developing three tools :

  1. an external media monitoring tool, to analyze news reporting by other broadcasters and press agencies to detect trends and main news items;
  2. an internal media monitoring tool, to enable journalists and other media professionals to keep track of what has been published within their own organization;
  3. a data-journalism tool, monitoring and analyzing statistical data

Deutsche Welle will be working towards testing and evaluating the entire SUMMA platform, and is the primary user partner for the internal monitoring tool. It is envisaged that the work will lead to a user-friendly and tested tool, specifically tailored to analyzing DW content, with potential for subsequent integration and implementation.

SUMMA runs from February 2016 – January 2019.
