Adobe Claims Their AI Can Spot Altered Images
An Adobe researcher revealed this week that they were able to use artificial technology to scan images for signs of digital manipulation.
Vald Morarium, who has had 14 years of expertise in image manipulation research, said that they were able to develop a tool that can scan for image tampering that is typically not visible to the naked eye. He said that their tool is able to recognize artefacts left by manipulation, like strong contrast edges, deliberately smoothed areas, or different noise patterns.
One expert remarked that while the core techniques in Adobe and Darpa’s research have been widely known for the last two decades, the use of machine learning could help reveal less obvious manipulation.
