A.I. cameras of the future could help prevent fake photos — at a cost
Spotting a fake photo is a careful exercise in recognizing the details — and even then, some images can fool even the experts. But what if the process of weeding out faked photos started from the source, the camera? That’s the idea behind a new study from the New York University Tandon School of Engineering. During the study, the researchers considered whether implementing artificial intelligence in the camera could help additional machine learning programs better identify if the image was altered. The researchers found that the method increased a computer’s accuracy at spotting fakes from 45% to 90%.
