Providing Verification Assistance for New Content

Name: Providing Verification Assistance for New Content
Coordinator: Jane Suiter, Dublin City University
Consortium: Dublin City University, Trinity College Dublin, Technical University Graz, Fundación Cibervoluntarios, NewsWhip Media, Institute of Information Theory and Automation, Everis
Project Runtime: 1 December 2018 – 30 November 2021
Funded by: European Commission
The main purpose of the project is to develop an intermediary-free solution for digital content verification that gives greater control to users of social media and underpins the dynamics of social sharing in values of trust, openness, and fair participation. The solutions proposed by Provenance will make it easier for consumers to evaluate online information by providing a simple, graphical guide – almost like a nutritional label – that will clarify the source and history of a piece of content.
