Open Distributed Digital Content Verification for Hyper-connected Sociality

Project description

Preventing the spread of false information online

Unreliable and inaccurate information of all kinds can spread rapidly online, particularly on social media networks. This makes it increasingly difficult, yet necessary, to verify information. Currently, verification is undertaken by centralised authorities, but this is not enough. The EU-funded project SocialTruth focuses on the creation of an open, democratic, pluralistic and distributed ecosystem that allows easy access to various verification services (both internal and third-party). By using blockchain technology, the aim is to ensure scalability and trust in a completely decentralised environment. The idea is to prevent the spread of misinformation by empowering individual users to verify information within their browsers. The solution also supports journalists as well as certified fact-checkers, to provide annotations on trustworthiness of news.
