Adobe Develops Image Manipulation Detect Using AI, Machine Learning

adobe is us based software company.on Friday Adobe announced that it can identify manipulated images using guy the company behind the photo editing program Photoshop says it has developed a tool that can detect if an image has tampered with Vlad Maryam an Adobe researcher employed artificial intelligence to scan for signs of manipulation that are not usually visible to the naked eye the eye could tell if an element has been added moved or cut from a photo but the company warned that the no piece of technology could provide a foolproof verification system Photoshop which was created 28 years ago is a powerful image editor and its name has become a verb for image manipulation existing verification tools can scan an image files metadata which contains information on when and where a photo was taken for signs of mischief and looked for things like inconsistent lighting but such tests are easily defeated

 

Mr Merriam who spent 14 years researching ways to spot image manipulation taught an artificial intelligence network to recognize signs of color change and noise inconsistencies in tens of thousands of pictures the initial study focused on three common manipulation techniques each of these techniques tend to leave certain artifacts such as strong contrast edges deliberately smooth areas or different noise patternsĀ  he notes.

Mr. Merriam whose research was carried out in conjunction with the US government agency DARPA said the algorithm might also detect differences in illumination and unusual compression in the future he added that Adobe which brought image manipulation capabilities to the masses was uniquely positioned to create tools to determine authenticity one expert said the core techniques in Adobe indart as research have been widely known for nearly 20 years but the use of machine learning might help reveal tampering that is not immediately apparent yet

But Haney farad a professor of computer science at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire warned that no artificial intelligence solution would be infallible these machine-based techniques can just as easily be turned against themselves to easily modify fake content to bypass forensic detection.
