Can Blockchain Be Applied to the Photo Industry?

The kick-off to our Innovation Day addresses the current buzzword of the picture industry: Blockchain Technology. As a technology allowing to decentralise the management of information and data, it is uniquely suited to photography. On the one hand, it facilitates work registration, individual rights management and allows digital scarcity, making photographs more valuable. On the other hand it may have a disrruptive effect on the image market by decentralising the management of works and of rights. More info …

Panel Discussion:

Unlocking Archives
with Innovation, Funding and Partnership 

After mass digitisation, institutions, agencies and collectors of cultural heritage are looking at ways to enrich and unlock their archives using curation tools, linked networks to other data sources and advanced searchability via the semantic web. With large numbers of images remaining in archives and pending folders, which contain little or no caption information, these innovative tools will be essential to create value and accessibility. Visit this seminar if you are interested in some of the projects that are working on these tools, included those funded by the EU. More info…

Speaker: Caroline Boyd (Copyright Hub), Michael Collins (IP Creative Licensing), Sam Minelli (GruppoMeta), Frederik Truyen (KU Leuven and Photo Consortium). The panel will be moderated by John Balean (TopFoto).
