Building resilience to disinformation and low-quality content through intermediary-free verification.

Disinformation and low-quality content undermine the digital ecosystem and contribute to the instability of societies across the world. To address this multifaceted problem, Provenance is developing new verification-based warning system for disinformation. The aim is to improve the information environment by building immunity to low quality content while fostering values of trust and openness. Provenance brings together expertise in media and journalism (Dublin City University); content intelligence (NewsWhip); visual manipulation detection (Czech Academy of Science), personalisation and user-centric design (Trinity College Dublin); blockchain (everis), citizen engagement (Cibervoluntarios) and evaluation (TU Graz)
