IPTC Photo Metadata Conference 2020:
Making the most out of Licensable Images
Tuesday October 13, 2020, 1500-1800 UTC
Photo metadata must correctly communicate critical facts, such as identifying the image creator, copyright owner, location pictured and even the background story. Photo metadata should also describe the scene from a human perspective – in human language – to make search better.
The IPTC Photo Metadata Conference has been held in conjunction with the CEPIC Congress for many years. The 2020 CEPIC Congress has been postponed to 19 to 21 May 2021, but with so much going on in the world of image metadata, we didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity, so we are holding a virtual event this year.
We have some very special guests for this year’s conference:
Michael Steidl, Lead of the IPTC Photo Metadata Working Group, will introduce IPTC Photo Metadata, and discuss recent developments, and what we see in the future of photo metadata.
Francois Spies, Product Manager, Google Images will present Google’s recent work on the “Licensable Images” project, which adds a “licensable” badge to images in Google search results, and links from the image preview panel in search results pages directly back to a place where users can obtain a licence to re-use the image.
Andy Parsons, Director of Content Authenticity Initiative, Adobe will present the Content Authenticity Initiative, which is “designing components and drafting standards specifications for a simple, extensible and distributed media provenance solution.”
How will the Content Authenticity Initiative work? What work has been done so far and what still needs to be done? How can you help?
