LIRIS (Laboratoire d’InfoRmatique en Image et Systèmes d’information) was created in 2003 through the merging of several former laboratories involved in Communication and Information Technology research.

The laboratory involves 320 researchers from INSA de Lyon, Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Ecole Centrale de Lyon, Université Lumière Lyon 2 and CNRS.
The laboratory is organized in six areas of skills of 20-25 permanents. Each of the 14 research teams belongs to one of these areas: Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition ; Geometry and modeling ; Data Science ; Services, Distributed Systems, and Security ; Simulation, virtuality, and computational sciences ; Interactions and cognition.

This mission is in the context of the ANR project ContentCheck

This collaborative project, funded by the ANR, brings together academic laboratories specialized in data management, natural language processing, automated reasoning and data mining, as well as a team of journalists from a major French media. We approach the problem of “ Fact Cheking ” as a problem of content management to set up new models, deploy new algorithms and to push further verifications in interaction with journalists.

List of partners:
– INRIA Saclay – Ile-de-France (CEDAR team, INRIA – Centre de recherche Saclay – Ile-de-France et École polytechnique)
– INSA LYON (DB and DM2L teams – LIRIS, Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon – Laboratoire d’Informatique en Images et Systèmes d’information)
