Most of today’s communication and social interaction happens over the Internet, enabling immediate distribution of digital content, with a wealth of visual stimuli facing us online. In this myriad of online information, untrustworthy sources become intertwined with credible ones, and the human capacity to process the context and validity of the content is quickly overloaded. Trust in media is declining, particularly for online news and social media. Duc Tien Dang Nguyen will demonstrate how researchers seek to advance methods that help publishers and citizens to avoid, be-made-aware-of and detect disinformation. He also looks at technologies that detect and reveal modified and manipulated images and building up trust in online media based on advanced image verification algorithms.
