In order to better evaluate and classify content residing in social Networks, it is necessary to filter and assess its information value in terms of credibility, trustworthiness, reputation, popularity, influence, authenticity and proximity. The European research project REVEAL focuses on verification technologies, tools and strategies. It aims to develop tools, components and strategies that aid journalists and enterprise community managers in identifying, assessing and verifying User Generated content (UGC) on Social Networks.

Eleven partners belong to the consortium, among them Software AG. With the ARIS Community Software AG will contribute an enterprise network scenario. The two use cases – the other one is a journalism scenario of Deutsche Welle – intend to highlight the areas in which REVEAL solutions will be deployed, and the user needs that are addressed by REVEAL.

This week, the first findings of REVEAL will be presented to European Commission in Bruxelles.
