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.
