Beyond these specs, there is a hardware change with the addition of a secure chip that unlocks the Content Authenticity Initiative technology mentioned earlier. Let’s take a closer look at the CAI and this new tech.
What is the Content Authenticity Initiative?
The Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) is a collaborative effort initiated by Adobe in partnership with various other organizations, including The New York Times and Leica, among others. Announced in late 2019, its primary goal is to develop a standard for digital content attribution. The rise in manipulated digital content, deep fakes, and misinformation has underlined the need for a more transparent system of content attribution, which the CAI seeks to address.
