Event description
Verifying images using tech with Storyful's Stephanie Hunt

About this Event

Altered, misidentified and outright fictitious images are at the vanguard of the fake news ‘revolution’. They inundate our social media feeds, muddy public discourse and erode trust in the work of newsmakers.

What practical tools can we use to meet this challenge? At our next Edit webinar, moderator Rachael Dexter will be joined by Stephanie Hunt, senior editor, Asia Pacific at Storyful. Storyful is a global social media agency that has carved out a specialty contextualising and verifying social media content. Hunt comes to this role following journalistic stints with BBC, Sky, Al Jazeera, WIN, Prime and Seven.

Rachael and Stephanie will be talking through some of Storyful’s investigative work and the tools and skills required to verify images, videos and other digital content.
