CEPIC & EANA WEBINAR: Fighting Fake News As A Business Model

Success stories from major press agencies and technology perspectives.

CEPIC and EANA proudly present their first joint webinar: “Fighting Fake News As A Business Model”

Combatting fake information is one of the many challenges faced by news agencies. Images, videos and text can now be easily manipulated and efficiently share misinformation.

While technology rapidly adopts and develops fixes, news agencies have turned this challenge into a business model of its own. This webinar will present real case stories on how major news agencies deal with fake news.

This webinar will also introduce the latest findings of the results of the image metadata usage survey published by the French government in July 2021. This survey is only available in French so far. Last but not least, there will be a short introduction of the draft technical specifications published by C2PA on 1 September 2021.
