Webinar: AI to the rescue in combatting fake news

The webinar will be addressing an increasingly important battle - news desks versus misinformation and fake news. In 2018, the Commission launched a detailed Action Plan against Disinformation. Recently, the European Digital Media Observatory started as part of that plan. 

We will be asking news desks and fact-checkers on how they check news stories and the tools at their disposal.

The Inspiration Journey on Fake News on 7 October is part of a series of digital events by MediaMotorEurope – the EU funded project helping startups and scaleups develop deep tech solutions for the media of tomorrow.
