InVID will build a platform providing services to detect, authenticate and check the reliability and accuracy of newsworthy video files and video content spread via social media. This platform will enable novel newsroom applications for broadcasters, news agencies, web pure-players, newspapers and publishers to integrate social media content into their news output without struggling to know if they can trust the material or how they can reach the user to ask permission for re-use. It will ensure that verified and rights-cleared video content is readily available for integration into breaking and developing news reports. Validated by real customer pilots, InVID will help protecting the news industry from distributing fakes, falsehoods, lost reputation and … lawsuits.
The InVID platform and applications will be validated and qualified through several development and validation cycles. They will be pilot-tested by three leading institutions in the European news industry ecosystem: AFP (the French News Agency), DW (Deutsche Welle), and APA (the Austria Press Agency), and will create new exploitation possibilities for all consortium members.
