After 4 weeks of public voting for the Innovation Radar 2017 competition, and a long day with TOP 20 finalists pitching for their proposals, the people have spoken!
ATC, our parent company, as won the Public Award for Truthnest, a tool that the company created in 2016 to address the phenomenon of fake news.
For a whole month, European citizens participated in an open vote to showcase the TOP 20 companies and organizations that are pioneering innovation across the EU by sending them to the final of the competition, at the ICT Proposers Day event , held in Budapest.
Today, the process of the final awarding phase of the "cream-of-the-crop" came to its end, including short pitches of all 20 companies, in front of a jury of experts and live audience. The audience that attended all presentations (decision makers of the private sector, key research instintutions and EU executives) recognised ATC's proposal to detect and verify fake news as the best!
In the same spirit, ATC has worked with Deutsche Welle, a media institution, to develop Truly Media platform, also using resources from the Google Digital News Initiative (DNI) Fund. Truly Media is an online collaboration environment where journalists from around the globecan use advanced digital tools for verifying news, images and videos as they are shared directly by users of social media (USG).
newsasset platform now incorporates all the features of the Truly Media service. Newsasset platform is a cloud based, uniform platform, supporting a common Content Hub and the ability to converge editorial production for Print, Digital, Radio, TV, even News Agency activities; hence, a truly Integrated newsroom can be implemented.
