One of the European disinformation research centers to open in Prague

One of the eight European centers for research of disinformation will be established in Prague and will be led by the experts from Charles University and the Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU). The aim of the Central European Digital Media Observatory project (CEDMO) is the interdisciplinary research into misinformation, including the detection using the elements of artificial intelligence, strengthening digital and media literacy and the development of fact-checking platforms.  

The project was born in Florence, Italy, within the local European University Institute, an international institution for postgraduate studies in the social sciences founded by European countries. Since then, the centers have been established in Athens, Greece, or Aarhus, Denmark.
