Infox Tracker (Round 6)

France Project type: prototype Groupe La Dépêche du Midi


The Infox Tracker project has two main parts: 

  1. A set of digital tools for journalists to assist them in their role, including maps and graphs. 
  2. The development of new channels to enable greater interactivity between journalists and their community. In the battle against misinformation, readers will become more involved in the journalistic process, both identifying and dealing with fake news.

The solution

One of the biggest challenges to media today is the spread of misinformation. Infox Tracker is proposing to provide journalists with a set of new tools to identify and deconstruct disformation more seamlessly. Heightening interaction with readers will increase community engagement, revive trust and allow them to become part of the journalistic process.
