In this workshop, designed to complement the panel Deep Fakes, Shallow Fakes and Real Deal Journalism, the speakers will guide users through a couple tools for video verification. We will look at Montage, a tool for video annotation and verification used by groups like the Carter Center; Hyperaudio, a transcription toolkit designed to make it easier to search, navigate, correct and share transcribed audio and video files; and Contextubot a Knight Foundation funded prototype that uses audio-fingerprinting to match audiovisual snippets with the original files hosted on a trusted source—in this case Internet Archive’s TV News Archive. We’ll also take a look at techniques that allow us to flag media as suspicious, such as analysing the metadata of any particular piece of media.

Organised in association with Meedan.
