MP3 and Beyond: Friend or Foe to the Audio Industry?
by Leonardo Chiariglione, VP Multimedia of Telecom Italia Lab, the Research Center of the Telecom Italia Group
Dr. Chiariglione's keynote address will suggest that science can be a two-edged sword. In terms of data-compression and encryption schemes, he argues, it is time that emergent technologies enabled creative opportunities for the content world, rather that fixate on proprietary technologies designed to establish a monopolistic control of digital media-delivery networks.
Leonardo Chiariglione graduated in Electronic Engineering from the Polytechnic of Turin and obtained his Ph. D. degree from the University of Tokyo in 1973. In 1971 he joined CSELT, the research center of the Telecom Italia group (now Telecom Italia Lab), where he is Vice President, Multimedia. He has been at the forefront of a number of initiatives that have helped shape media technology and business as we know them today.
