Adstoppi Blog | Adobe and Twitter for permanently attaching artists' names to pictures

Published by:


Adobe, Twitter, and The New York Times Company have announced a new system for adding attribution to photos and other content. A tool will record who created a piece of content and whether it's been modified by someone else, then let other people and platforms check that data. Adobe showed off a prototype in Photoshop today, but many of the details are still in flux, and there’s no release date.

The overall project is called the Content Authenticity Initiative, and its participants will hold a summit on the system in the next few months. Based on what Adobe has announced, the attribution tool is a piece of metadata that can be attached to a file. Adobe does't describe precisely how it will keep the tag secure or prevent someone from copying the content in a way that strips it out. Adobe chief product officer Scott Belsky said that some technical details will be worked out at the summit.

Adobe described this system as a way to verify "authenticity" online. And The New York Times Company's research and development head, Marc Lavallee, suggested it could fight misinformation by helping people discern "trusted news" on digital media platforms.

But the most obvious uses include identifying a photo's source and making sure artists get credit for their work. Many photos and webcomics circulate anonymously on platforms like Twitter, and an attribution tag would help trace those images back to their creator. This depends entirely on how well the CAI system works, however. Tags wouldn't be very useful if they could be easily altered or removed, but if the system preserves security by tightly controlling how people can interact with the image, it could have the same downsides as other digital rights management or DRM systems.

The three founding members of the CAI also want more companies to support the project since its value depends largely on how many people buy into it. "We believe that a lot of creators will be happy to provide this information. And over time, consumers will come to expect content to come with attribution," said Belsky.

Tesla will temporarily shut down its car manufacturing plant in Fremont, California, starting at the end of Monday, March 23rd, joining nearly every other major automaker in suspending its US operations due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. The announcement comes after days of back-and-forth with the local authorities about whether the company was exempt from a recent shelter-in-place order in the San Francisco Bay Area. Tesla will also suspend most operations at its solar panel factory in Buffalo, New York. "Despite taking all known health precautions, continued operations in certain locations has caused challenges for our employees, their families and our suppliers," the company wrote in a press release. "As such, we have decided to temporarily suspend production" at both...

iRobot is best known for its robots used in the home, and now it’s looking to enter the classroom with a new acquisition. The company has announced that it has acquired Root Robotics, which sells a robot and platform that helps children learn how to code. Root Robotics originated as a research project at Harvard University a couple of years ago, and its Robot already looks considerably like a Roomba — it’s a small, circular device that uses two wheels to drive around on a flat surface. It’s accompanied by an app that teaches children how to program the robot to do a variety of tasks, like drawing (the robot has a hold to place a marker in), creating music or games, and more. iRobot says that the acquisition will help it “diversify its educational robot product offerings, further...

Increasing Business Revenue

Why? Since individuals buy established companies and when the business goes south after that complain. After he and his partner purchased an established company, two important workers left and so did a significant a part the revenue. With the retirement of the proprietor, existing customers left because their loyalty was not and to the owner to the ones. The company was over 3 decades old and very well established. All the documents were in tact and which looked good. An old quote states: Good luck occurs when preparedness meets opportunity. So maybe the reverse is true that hardship happens when no preparation meets the unknown. The failure is failure. Without an activity plan to begin to guide a company or a person, the end result is generally walking the wrong path together with lots...

Japan is moving ahead with plans to land a spacecraft on Phobos, one of Mars' moons. If successful, the mission would mark the first time any country has touched down on the surface of the Martian moon and potentially the first round-trip mission to the Mars system. Japan's space agency, JAXA, announced today that the Martian Moons Exploration (MMX) project had officially moved into the development phase. This means that the team will start working on the hardware and software for the mission ahead of a planned launch in 2024. MMX will take off sometime in 2024 and arrive at Mars around 2025. It will spend the next three years surveying both moons of Mars, Phobos and Deimos, creating detailed maps of their surfaces. During that time, MMX will also land on Phobos and take a sample, digging...

Understanding The Tourism Industry

Since the world was shrunk to a village. Unlike our predecessors, we might easily and at a shorter time travel around the world in large numbers relatively secure. Tourism being among the biggest and fastest growing businesses internationally, its advantages and the struggles, vaguely detected by authorities affects the economic, socio-cultural, ecological and educational sources of countries. The favorable effects of tourism on a country's economics include the growth and maturation of different businesses directly connected with a healthful tourism business, like transport, accommodation, wildlife, arts, and entertainment. This contributes to the development of new jobs and earnings generated from foreign exchange, investments and payments for goods and services supplied. Although...

On Monday we talked about some of the pressures stacking up on TikTok: increasing skepticism from Congress about its Chinese parent company ByteDance; a raft of new competitors slurping up venture capital and building their own short-form video apps powered by machine learning; and the public-perception risk that comes from keeping executives behind the scenes and responding to questions primarily via blog post. Well, today there was a new blog post. In it, Vanessa Pappas, TikTok's general manager for the United States, laid out her case that the management team behind the app is and will remain independent of demands from the Chinese government. The company is building out a US-based leadership team, a US-based content moderation team; and localized community guidelines. It pledged to...

The race for Oscar glory just kicked into high gear. "The Irishman," "Joker," "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood" and "1917" dominated the list of nominees for the 92nd Academy Awards announced early Monday, with each scoring best picture nods. But as always, some of the major headlines revolve around the movies and stars left out of the running. Here's a look at the key takeaways. 'Joker' isn't done conquering the culture Todd Phillips' stark, gloomy take on Gotham City, starring Joaquin Phoenix as the DC Comics supervillain, stirred up sociopolitical debate like few Hollywood blockbusters in recent memory. The major critics were divided over the movie's rough-edged violence and lurid depiction of mental illness, with some accusing Phillips of exploiting cultural anxieties around incels,...

DJI’s newest product, the Osmo Pocket, is the smallest handheld stabilizer the drone/camera company has made. It takes a bunch of things the Chinese company has done really well and puts them into an impressively small form factor. It’s meant to offer drone-like footage in a size that is comparable to a GoPro (even if it can’t take the same kinds of wear and tear). The Osmo Pocket costs $349 and ships December 15th. The Osmo Pocket stands just four inches tall and weighs barely over four ounces (116g). When you turn it off, the gimbal tilts the camera on end so that the whole system can fit into a small case, which then easily slides into a pocket — hence the name. Instead of using the large Zenmuse camera found on the original Osmo or a smartphone as the camera like with the Osmo...

Nike is bringing an end to a deal with Amazon

Published by:

Nike is bringing an end to a deal with Amazon which saw the athletics brand sell its clothes and shoes directly to customers on the e-commerce site, reports Bloomberg. Although third-party sellers will be able to continue selling Nike products, Nike will no longer act as a wholesaler to Amazon. Nike and Amazon's deal first emerged back in 2017. At the time, Nike's aim was to regulate its products when they appeared on the site, cracking down on sales from unlicensed distributors as well as knockoff items being sold by third-party sellers. However, over the last two years, Bloomberg reports that this control never fully materialized. Nike struggled to compete against third-party listings, who would often benefit from having more reviews than Nike's listings. The move comes as Nike is...
