This Virtual Design Challenge is an opportunity to work creatively in teams on challenges and themes related to detection of fake full motion videos and protection of their authenticity, which needed to accelerate confidence in the Digital Society and Economy.
Teams will have the opportunity to work with the assistance of mentors from the sponsoring organizations, and to receive feedback from our judges on their solutions. Participants will have the opportunity to create and submit works (collectively an “Entry”) that have the potential to provide real solutions relevant to the sponsors and that can benefit the management of full motion video in dverse contexts.
Teams may begin working on their submission to Virtual Design Challenge as soon as they are registered.
