On 17 January 2023, from 2-3 pm CET, the EBU is hosting a free webinar open to interested parties from journalism and fact-checking with a manifold aim.
To start with, the event will be used to introduce vera.ai to an interested audience. EBU staff - as hosts of the online session - are aiming primarily at journalists, fact-checkers and newsroom professionals as a target audience.
A particular aim of the event is to present to participants how user needs of respective stakeholders are to be included in the vera.ai project. This includes outlining how you can be involved in the activities yourselves, thereby shaping the route to be engaged in and respective developments.
The session will be hosted by AI and Data Initiative coordinator Lalya Gaye. She will be joined by Derek Bowler from the EBU's fact-checking service Eurovision Social Newswire. Other project partners will also be present to try and answer whatever queries you may have.
To get your place (and the required video conference link), please register at the respective EBU site. Participation is free of charge.
Everyone is welcome, especially EBU Members, factchecking professionals from beyond the EBU member community, and anyone interested in how AI can support in countering disinformation.
We look forward to seeing you online on 17 January 2023 from 2-3 pm CET.
