With the rapid rise of information technology and the continuous update of science and technology, society has stepped into the digital age, which accelerates the prosperity of visual culture, and news has entered the era of reading pictures. The development of digital technology not only brings convenience to news photography, but also brings great challenges to professional news photographers. The advantage is that the buttons of digital cameras have replaced the technical means of traditional film photography, thus greatly reducing the threshold of photography. This article will explain the two development directions of photojournalism in the digital age, evaluate the contribution of documentary photojournalism to society, and also consider some development constraints.
Abstract: Face recognition systems are used in practically every industry in this digital age. One of the most widely utilized biometrics is face recognition. It can be used for security, authentication, and identity, among other things. Despite its low accuracy relative to iris and fingerprint identification, it is extensively utilized because it is a contactless and non-invasive technique. Face recognition systems can also be used to track attendance in schools, colleges, and companies. Because the existing manual attendance system is time consuming and difficult to maintain, this system intends to create a class attendance system that employs the concept of face recognition. There’s also the possibility of proxy attendance. As a result, the demand for this system grows. Database development, face detection, face recognition, and attendance updating are the four steps of this system. The photos of the kids in class are used to generate the database. Faces are discovered and recognized from the classroom's live streaming footage. At the end of the session, the attendance will be mailed to the appropriate faculty. Keywords: Smart Attendance System, NFC, RFID, OpenCV, NumPy
Media systems have changed significantly as a result of the development of information technologies. However, typologies of media systems that incorporate aspects of digitalization are rare. This study fills this gap by identifying, operationalizing, and measuring indicators of media systems in the digital age. We build on previous work, extend it with new indicators that reflect changing conditions (such as online news use), and include media freedom indicators. We include 30 countries in our study and use cluster analysis to identify three clusters of media systems. Two of these clusters correspond to the media system models described by Hallin and Mancini, namely the democratic-corporatist and the polarized-pluralist model. However, the liberal model as described by Hallin and Mancini has vanished; instead, we find empirical evidence of a new cluster that we call “hybrid”: it is positioned in between the poles of the media-supportive democratic-corporatist and the polarized-pluralist clusters.
The article is devoted to the phenomenon of modern youth’s infantilization, attracting more and more attention of researchers. The view of infantilism as a kind of youth disease generated by a change in socio-cultural reality and digitalization is opposed the interpretation of infantilism as an artificially derived category (media product). The data of a pilot “image of an adult “ study (in young people perception) are presented. The thesis that in modern realities the “adult image” is at the stage of critical rethinking is proposed.
Bridging the gaps between property graduates’ attributes and industry expectations has been touted to be the key driver of sustainable development for the next generation of the workforce. This study investigated property-related knowledge and skills from the perspective of property employers and graduates in Australia in the digital age by (1) identifying the most and least important knowledge and skillsets in the property sector; (2) examining the strategies used to develop the required knowledge and skillsets; and (3) ascertaining if there are differences in the knowledge and skillsets perceived to be necessary between employers and graduates. A questionnaire survey was undertaken across property employers affiliated with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and graduates of an Australian university. The results showed that problem solving and time management are the most important knowledge and skills for property employers and graduates, respectively. Notably, there were statistically significant differences in the perceived importance of course directors maintaining close communication with employers, real-life case study-based school assessment, the use of various course delivery methods, inviting guest speakers, and internship training while studying between employers and graduates. This finding implies that Australian property professionals are yet to fully embrace technology in the digital age.
The article considers the directions of development of legal regulation of innovative entrepreneurship and innovative markets in the digital age. World practice shows that there is a distortion of competition in digital markets, prerequisites for some form of monopolization of markets arise. This damages producers, consumers, and the country as a whole. Therefore, as shown in the article, the state can develop antimonopoly regulation in a number of directions, depending on the specifics of the market.
