Workshop on standardised fingerprints

Jonas ÖbergJonas Öberg

The algorithms I've worked on in the Elog.io and Videorooter projects all aim to make visual identification of photographs and videos possible with the use of fingerprints: two videos which are the same, but in different encoding formats, should ideally generate the same fingerprint.

In September, Kennisland and Commons Machinery is inviting to a workshop on standardising hashing, with the intent of bringing others who do similar work together. We're far from the only ones doing fingerprint algorithms for photographs and videos, and we'd like to bring as many people as possible together to discuss joinly how we can move the field forward and what the opportunities there are for more collaboration.

If you're interested in algorithms for fingerprinting videos and photographs, and ideally if you've worked on such algorithms yourself, check out the announcement.
