Fake News, Misinformation and Disinformation - Learning to Critically Evaluate Sources of Information: Images: Photos, Videos and more
Do you want to search similar images across the internet? This is where reverse image search comes into play. You have found an image, whether it is a photograph, artwork, or even a graph, and you want to know where it came from, or more about it.

Advanced Real-Time Manipulation of Video Streams by Jan HerlingDiminished Reality is a new fascinating technology that removes real-world content from live video streams. This sensational live video manipulation actually removes real objects and generates a coherent video stream in real-time. Viewers cannot detect modified content. Existing approaches are restricted to moving objects and static or almost static cameras and do not allow real-time manipulation of video content. Jan Herling presents a new and innovative approach for real-time object removal with arbitrary camera movements.

Shaping Images by Thorsten BeckImages play an outstanding role in the transfer of knowledge. They are used in numerous academic disciplines to present scientific results. Digital tools such as Adobe Photoshop make it possible to display the information in images brilliantly and clearly - at the same time the line between appropriate and inappropriate manipulation is not always easy to draw. Scientific journals have published guidelines for handling and editing images, but they are not always specific enough to provide clarity for all situations. ,,Shaping Images" examines how scholars from biology, information science, art history and design deal with this uncertainty - how they process and manipulate images, where they see their special potential and how they draw the line between appropriate and inappropriate image manipulation. The work also looks at scientific journals and lets selected editors have their say: What would have to happen to make it possible to combat image manipulation in science more effectively? The book's interdisciplinary approach makes it clear how different the practices are and how different the views are on what should be allowed in the processing of images. Images - this too is problematized in the book - are always a means to a certain end, which is precisely why the handling of images should be thoroughly reflected upon.

Video Verification in the Fake News Era by Vasileios Mezaris (Editor); Lyndon Nixon (Editor); Symeon Papadopoulos (Editor); Denis Teyssou (Editor)This book presents the latest technological advances and practical tools for discovering, verifying and visualizing social media video content, and managing related rights. The digital media revolution is bringing breaking news to online video platforms, and news organizations often rely on user-generated recordings of new and developing events shared in social media to illustrate the story. However, in video, there is also deception. In today's "fake news" era, access to increasingly sophisticated editing and content management tools and the ease with which fake information spreads in electronic networks, require the entire news and media industries to carefully verify third-party content before publishing it. As such, this book is of interest to computer scientists and researchers, news and media professionals, as well as policymakers and data-savvy media consumers.
