The 24th-25th February hackathon, organized by GEN and Gruppo L’Espresso, with the support of Google News Lab, has been won by the team from La Stampa. Their proposal consists of a plugin for browsers to debunk to individual posts shared on social networks during environmental disaster. Special mentions were awarded to the teams from Rai News and Repubblica. Then, public’s choice went to Rai News‘ project.
Rai News team focused on the very first moments of a catastrophic event when media are facing the urgent problem of organizing their resources. At this purpose, a suited communication platform between journalists and control room has been proposed.
