Digital Snaphot | 27.06.2019

Including... Our new digital services offer, a DCMS update on the progress of 'Culture is Digital' and the astonishing integration of WeChat into almost all aspects of life in China.

Welcome back to The Digital Snapshot, a fortnightly round-up of all the news, innovation and interesting ideas in the world of digital, as relevant to the arts, culture, museums and heritage sectors. The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that we skipped an issue so this one is jam packed with news, projects and ideas. We also now have an archive of previous Digital Snapshots up on The Audience Agency website, so if you've missed any recently, find them here.

Do let us know if you're working on an exciting digital project that you'd like to share!

And remember we can help with your digital challenges. We do all kinds of work in the digital realm, from strategy and training, to helping organisations understand their audiences' digital behaviours, work out how to reach and engage a new audience online or understand what kinds of content resonates best with their visitors. Please do get in touchfor a chat.

  • Kudos to the inimitable Emma Balch for this interesting work taking a live performance to "immersive audiobook".
  • Kickstarter has launched a campaign to 'Break Kickstarter'. It strikes me that this is so ripe for intrinsically creative (ie many cultural) organisations.
  • Not sure this is the right peg to hang this story on but crikey we are on a fast path with tech, as AI researchers turn one photo into a talking head 'deepfake' video, "When the researchers asked 66 people to watch 24 videos – 12 are real, and 12 deepfakes – people could only label them as real or fake correctly about 52 per cent of the time"
