ABSTRACT

CovidCheck: Assessing the Implementation of EU Code of Practice on Disinformation in Relation to COVID-19   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "Commissioned by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, this report presents a systematic analysis of the transparency reports submitted by Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, TikTok, and Twitter in response to the European Commission's June 2020 Communication on tackling COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 209] disinformation. The researchers analysed 47 reports that were submitted between August 2020 and April 2021. The analysis involved manual coding to identify individual actions and an automated textual analysis to identify themes and patterns. In addition, the report presents findings from case studies investigating the implementation of COVID-19 policies on Facebook and TikTok and the signatories' transparency regarding the use of AI [artificial intelligence] and automation."
