Event Details

With the the cell phone camera’s rise in ubiquity, more people are taking newsworthy photos and videos and sharing them directly with social networks and news media. While helpful in providing valuable information and context to news events at times, these images can also be manipulated to become misrepresented visuals intended to deceive or sway opinion.

Designed for journalists, technologists, academics and imaging experts, at TechRaking: Verifying the News, we will highlight use cases, share information, discuss technology and look for ways to create more widespread adoption of visual verification in newsrooms.

Attendees will also have a chance to ‘hack’ a solution to a presented challenge focused on empowering journalists to incorporate verification tools and techniques into their news gathering workflows.
