The vera.ai project aims to develop and build trustworthy AI solutions in the fight against disinformation.

The project aims to continue and enrich the work started in the “forerunner project”, WeVerify, completed in November 2021. The consortium brings together leading research teams, technology experts and end users from the domain of countering disinformation. The consortium partners follow a multidisciplinary co-creation approach and deliver solutions that directly address the latest user needs and can be used by journalists, fact-checkers, investigators, researchers and all those verifying content. The vera.ai solutions will use AI methods to support online content verification activities and deal with many content types across various languages, such as audio, video, images, and text.
