AIR Tracks Usage of Images

In this age of technology, it is no surprise that the internet has become a playground filled with unauthorized uses of artists’ works. Monitoring these uses has become especially challenging for graphic and visual artists.

ARS is proud to announce that we are joining ADAGP, our French sister society, in embarking on this challenge by partnering with the Automatic Image Recognition (AIR) Project. AIR operates on digital fingerprinting, a technology that is able to recognize, extract, and filter mass data from searched images, thereby aiding in the challenge of monitoring unauthorized uses on digital platforms. To learn more about the project please visit ARS here.

The more images that we can collect for AIR to monitor, the better! So, if you are an interested ARS member artist, please send an email to and we will be in contact with the next steps.
