Face recognition, bad people and bad data

Benedict Evans…

We worry about face recognition just as we worried about databases – we worry what happens if they contain bad data and we worry what bad people might do with them … we worry what happens if it [facial recognition] doesn’t work and we worry what happens if it does work.

This comparison turns out to be a familiar and fertile foundation for exploring what can go wrong and what we should do about it.

content management system

Content management, or CM, is the set of processes and technologies that support the collection, managing, and publishing of information in any form or medium. When stored and accessed via computers, this information has come to be referred to, simply, as content or, to be precise, digital content. Digital content may take the form of text, multimedia files (such as audio or video files), or any other file type that follows a content lifecycle requiring management.

There are many types of content management systems (CMS) that include a wide variety of functions in addition to content management. Categories of content management systems include Enterprise Content Management (ECM), Web Content Management (WCM), and Digital Asset Managment (DAM). 

Most CMSs are currently marketed as “Digital Experience Management” (DEM or DXM), and “Customer Experience Management” (CEM or CXM) systems or platforms, and may include additional marketing technology functions.

The term ‘content management’ became popular when ‘web content management’ systems emerged to differentiate them from ‘document management’ systems which were associated with paper documents. ‘Content management’ then quickly evolved to cover all kinds of unstructured or semi-structured content. Common types of content management systems (CMS) include enterprise content management (ECM), digital asset management (DAM), and web content management (WCM). The latter are now widely marketed as Digital Experience Management’ (DEM or DXM), and ‘Customer Experience Management’ (CEM or CXM) systems or platforms, and may include additional marketing technology functions.
