SpeechProtector: A Speech Protection System for Preventing Reporting Bias

Freedom of expression is welcomed in democratic nations, but there is no end of cases in which recorded video is processed to report information not intended by the person in the video. We have developed a prototype system for preventing this sort of bias in reporting. The system is a smartphone application that allows users, who are the subject of news-gathering, to also record the material themselves, post it to a video sharing site, and to display a QR code containing a link to the video. The system enables a link to a video reproducing the original statements to be forcefully embedded in the report video, which should inhibit bias in the reporting as it is presented later.

See this paper for the detail.
