The Internet leads to the multiplication of content productions and speed of information transmission. However, these new possibilities are not without downsides: misinformation, propaganda, proliferation of conspiracy theories and hate speech. These phenomena harm both the quality of the debates that take place on the Internet and the stability of our democracy.

With the ambition to offer a collective response to those challenges, Renaissance Numerique, ISOC France, Agence France Press and Savoir*Devenir are organising a hackathon dedicated to informational disorders in the digital era. This event will bring together academics, associations, developers, journalists, and students in order to generate cross-curricular solutions, combining social sciences and IT development, to face those issues.

The hackathon will be organised around three main themes:

  • Tackling online hate speech;
  • Fake videos and informational disorders;
  • Media and digital literacies.

Two main projects lie at the heart of this action. First, the improvement of the inVID project, carried by Agence France Presse, whose aim is to provide a tool to check pictures and videos, and second, the internationalisation of the Seriously Project, the tool to tackle hate speech on the Internet, conceived by Renaissance Numérique.
