How to restore trust on the web while crediting people who create things for a living for what they produce?
For the Trusted Web Foundation Podcast, Sebastiaan had the pleasure of interviewing Andy Parsons, Senior Director at Adobe and leading their Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI).
My guest and I share a very deep passion for a trustworthy internet, and his name is Andy Parsons. Over the last few decades, Andy has been a CTO of over a dozen companies, a founder of several companies and a start-up mentor. Andy is currently a Senior Director at Adobe, overseeing its Content Authenticity Initiative. In 2019, Adobe launched this Content Authenticity Initiative with launching partners Twitter and NY Times., where the idea was to establish what they call Digital Content Provenance, which we will extensively discuss throughout this episode. Tune in to this episode as we discuss balancing permanence and flexibility in technology, how we can drive trust from mathematics, the role of open source, and how the Adobe-led community has gained traction with creators, technologists, journalists, activists, and educators. – Sebastiaan van der Lans, Founder WordProof
