Associate Professor Min Wu (ECE/ UMIACS/ ISR) and Professor K.J. Ray Liu (ECE/ISR) received honorable mention in the 2006 Computerworld Horizon Awards for their digital fingerprinting research. The Clark School faculty members are developing multimedia forensics technologies that will protect digital resources and trace those who attempt to steal or misuse them.

Wu and Liu's new, interdisciplinary digital fingerprinting technology includes anti-collusion codes that protect multimedia content from unauthorized redistribution by embedding a unique ID that leaves a distinct fingerprint on each user's copy without compromising the quality of the multimedia product or inhibiting legitimate uses. This ID can identify which users have contributed to a piracy attack.

The Computerworld Horizon Awards were established in 2005 to alert readers to especially cutting-edge technologies from research labs and companies that are "on the horizon." This year's honorees were selected from over 200 nominations.
