Battling Fake News
Have you ever heard of Veles, Macedonia? This small city of less than 50'000 inhabitants has been dubbed a fake news factory, pumping out thousands of fake articles on the US-elections throughout 2016. But deepfakes and other synthetically generated content even damage the credibility of videos. While some neural networks specialize in the creation of fake news, others learn their detection. With technology advancing rapidly, fake news remains a pressing problem in today's political landscape. Join us in using data-hungry machine learning algorithms and the swarm-intelligence of a blockchain-network to counter this problem! You can use our API portal api.srgssr.ch to get access to audio and video content with metadata, articles, election results in Switzerland and other countries back to 1900 and the Swiss music portal mx3.ch. SRF is the Swiss public service media. 9 Radio- and 3 TV-Stations produce high-quality German-language content for Switzerland's biggest audience.
