STORY

Verification of eyewitness photos/videos

To verify that the information spread through eyewitness photography is true to the cause and country it is supposed to represent

Agencies that look for human rights violations through social media are consistently having a hard time verifying the trustworthiness of the image and its place of origin.

“The Incredible Moment Syrian HERO Boy ‘Fakes Death’ To Save Girl From Sniper.”

This video went viral last year. However, as time went on the video was traced back to an film producer who hired professional actors to film this scene.

This was released amongst the beginning of the Syrian atrocity and no one questioned its authenticity. Human Rights organizations have to fight through this everyday. While they are looking for real videos to try and portray the situation truthfully to the public, they are left with hard constraints that make them question every video’s authenticity.

Long Term Goals

  • To establish software to help verify the authenticity of photos
  • To make sure the software can determine the location of the photo
  • To locate the original photo and first time it was uploaded
  • To ensure the photo has enough verification to aid the human rights researchers in their efforts and disperse the software to them
