For over 20 years, Athens Technology Center (ATC) has been designing, developing and supporting leading technology solutions for the news industry globally, serving news agencies and publishers with end to end services.
Deutsche Welle is Germany’s international public service broadcaster. It provides multi-platform and multi-channel news and information services for a worldwide audience in 30 languages.
In order to address the misinformation ecosystem and what is often referred to as “fake news”, ATC coupled its extensive industry-related experience in the field of content aggregation and analysis, with Deutsche Welle’s expertise in contemporary media industry needs and journalistic working practices. As a result, the two partners developed, and are now providing, Truly Media, a collaborative platform for the analysis and especially the verification of digital content. In particular, Truly Media supports its users to collaboratively assess the validity and accuracy of (user generated) digital content that is distributed and shared via various means and networks.
