MAD '22 Workshop: Multimedia AI against Disinformation
The verification of multimedia content posted online becomes increasingly challenging due to recent advancements in synthetic media manipulation and generation. Moreover, malicious actors can easily exploit AI technologies to spread disinformation across social media at a rapid pace, which poses very high risks for society and democracy. There is, therefore, an urgent need for AI-powered tools that facilitate the media verification process. The objective of the MAD '22 workshop is to bring together those who work on the broader topic of disinformation detection in multimedia in order to share their experiences and discuss their novel ideas, reaching out to people with different backgrounds and expertise. The research domains of interest vary from the detection of manipulated and synthetic content in multimedia to the analysis of the spread of disinformation and its impact on society.
