13 May: Project Origin – Protecting Trusted Media
Misinformation is a growing threat to the integrity of the information eco-system. Having a provable source of origin for media, and knowing that it has not been tampered with en-route, will help to maintain confidence in news from trusted providers. This technical provenance approach, in conjunction with media education and synthetic media detection techniques will help to establish a foundation for trust in media.
