Adobe AI Program Spots “Faked” Images

It’s a fake photo war. And at the forefront of the fight is the Photoshop founder: Adobe. 

Adobe has developed an Artificial Intelligence program that works to spot photo manipulation and so-called “fake” photos. Of course, many underwater photographers (raises hand) use Photoshop on a daily basis for honorable purposes like removing blue color casts, eliminating backscatter, and effectively cropping images. Some are more mischievous. 

“Some people use these powerful tools to ‘doctor’ photos for deceptive purposes,” Adobe writes in a blog post. “Adobe is exploring the boundaries of what’s possible using new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, to increase trust and authenticity in digital media.”

The AI focuses on three common practices in faked images: splicing, copy-move, and object removal. How the program automatically determines photo manipulation is complex, but it basically boils down to analyzing minute inconsistencies in an image’s noise. Learn more about the technology in the video below.

Photoshop fakers, be warned.
