Blog<> post:

Last week we talked about ClaimReview, with a presentation from Chris Guess (group member and lead technologist at Duke Reporters Lab). See notes<> and a video is available on request. ClaimReview continues to see wide adoption as a way for fact checkers to make their results available to platforms and other applications, and various improvements are in the works. There’s now a high-level website about it, at<>

This past long weekend a few of us attended WikiCredCon<>, a credibility-focused instance of the North American Wiki Conference.

I was fascinated to see more behind the scenes of the Wikipedia world and was surprised how much difficult work is necessary to keep Wikipedia running. Perhaps most daunting from a credibility perspective is how hard it is to combat the sock puppets / bots. Many parallel tracks, so each of us could only see a small slice of the conference. Most sessions had extensive note-taking and even video recording, thanks to sponsors. Not all the video is online yet, and currently session notes are at the “etherpad” links from the session detail pages; I imagine those might move soon.

This week (tomorrow), group member Brendan Quinn (Managing Director of IPTC<> – the global standards body of the news media) will present and lead a discussion about their current work with credibility data interoperability. See you there!
