EFCSN announces project for identifying AI generated and digitally altered content

The European Fact-Checking Standards Network (EFCSN) is excited to announce a new project focused on identifying AI generated and digitally altered content, supported by Meta. The project will work with both the fact-checking community and the wider public to promote knowledge in this area ahead of the 2024 European Parliament elections.

The EFCSN has surveyed members to gather their insights about how they work to identify and fact-check or debunk AI generated and digitally altered content, while also finding out the challenges fact-checking organisations face with this type of content. Based on these findings and in collaboration with experts in the field, the EFCSN will organise workshops for our members to define standards and train the fact-checking community in identifying and debunking AI generated and digitally altered content.

As a result of these efforts, the EFCSN and members will also produce a one-pager that will be translated into 27 European languages to disseminate findings for the wider counter-disinformation community.

In addition to the work with our members and the fact-checking community, the project will push a public awareness campaign to promote media literacy and raise public awareness of how to spot AI generated and digitally altered content. The campaign will consist of five infographics and one explainer video to be disseminated in time before the 2024 European Parliament Elections.

 AI@EUElections is a joint project of the European Fact-Checking Standards Network and its participating member organisations, funded by Meta.
