The InVID research project releases a plug-in that supports journalists in verifying videos
One of the research projects in which we are involved is InVID – ‘In Video Veritas’. The project, running from 2016 until the end of 2018, deals with various aspects of video verification. This includes investigating legal aspects, supporting rights clearance processes, and above all the development and testing of tools and modules that support and part-automate the verification of videos.
Half-way into the project’s duration, the project is pleased that first results can be made available to the public and, in particular, the verification community.

DW Innovation @ NewsXchange
From 12 to 14 November 2014 we had the opportunity to attend the NewsXchange 2014 conference in Prague, Czech Republic. “We” in this case means DW Innovation’s Wilfried Runde and Jochen Spangenberg, completed by Ellen Schuster of DW’s Strategic Programme Planning Department.
The annual conference is one of Europe’s prime events for the news industry. It brings together experts from all over the world. This year’s headcount came down to an astonishing 520 delegates – a first time ever sell-out in the NewsXchange history. Most attendants were either members of the broadcasting and electronic media industries or news agencies. Others came from solution and service providers making their way to the Czech capital to attend an inspiring and well-organized event that was well worth the visit.
News coverage and reporting from all angles
Being future-of-media-savvy people, we used the opportunity to discuss the state of affairs in newsgathering and reporting, and to find out about current and new trends and challenges.

Multilingual media monitoring with smart content analysis
MULTISENSOR is developing new multilingual online media analysis technologies. The aim is to enable professional media monitors (e.g. journalists, press agencies, analysts) to attain a comprehensive and exact understanding of topics being discussed on the web.
The MULTISENSOR platform scans multiple heterogeneous sources, then translates and processes the content. It visualizes details about sentiment, entities, social and other important aspects necessary to provide context. Adding automated summarization of each content item MULTISENSOR helps you to better distinguish the relevant signals among the noise.
Deutsche Welle is a user partner, leading the use case development and requirements gathering. We are also involved in dissemination and evaluation of the project’s results.
The project runs from November 2013 – November 2016.
