4th JPEG NFT and Fake Media Workshop Announcement
March 10, 2022

Context

Both Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and fake media impose several technical, societal and legal challenges. The JPEG Committee has a significant track record in security and trust in imaging applications and hence initiated the JPEG NFT and JPEG Fake Media exploration studies.

The JPEG NFT exploration study aims to better understand the needs in terms of imaging requirements and how existing as well as potential JPEG standards can help to bring security and trust to NFTs in a wide range of applications and notably those that rely on contents that are represented in JPEG formats in still and animated pictures and 3D contents.

On the other hand, the scope of the JPEG Fake Media exploration is the creation of a standard that can facilitate secure and reliable annotation of media asset creation and modifications. The standard shall support usage scenarios that are in good faith as well as those with malicious intent.

To engage with stakeholders and identify challenges and technical solutions in these domains, the JPEG Committee has organized several workshop:

Given various common challenges between the two activities, this fourth workshop will focus on synergies between NFT and Fake Media, in particular related to identificaiton of media assets as well as involbed actors or stakeholders.
