Adobe and Google's AI Tools: Tackling Image Authenticity
Imagine waking up one morning to find a fake image of you or your business's product going viral. Nightmare scenario, right?
In the AI era, this is more than just a hypothetical. It's a real threat that could damage your reputation, lead to legal issues, and even tank your stock prices.
This risk + with many elections on the horizon are putting pressure on the AI Tech Titans to bring real solutions.
Back in June, Adobe launched their Content Authenticity Initiative which attaches extra metadata to images, detailing how an image was created and if AI had a hand in it. Think of it as a digital fingerprint, which can be easily analyzed by 3rd party tech tools or social media platforms.
This week, Google also threw their hat in the ring.
They rolled out an 'About This Image' feature, which reveals when Google first spotted an image. Simple, yet powerful, it's a new way to verify an image's authenticity.
But Google didn't stop there. They also introduced a Fact Checking API that can analyze an image's history, components, and whether AI was involved in its creation.
So, why should you care about these developments?
1) Business will need help shielding from the dangers of fake images.
Fake images can wreak havoc on a company's reputation, trigger legal headaches, and even impact their bottom line. These tools will help confirm image authenticity and halt the spread of misinformation.
2) They shine a light on AI usage.
By revealing if AI was used to create an image, these tools pull back the curtain on the AI process and champion ethical AI practices.
3) They put the pressure on other tech companies.
Adobe and Google's initiatives send a clear message: tech companies can and should step up to address the potential misuse of their AI technologies.
In a mixture of challenges associated to copyright, deep fakes and hallucinations - it’s important to keep your finger on the pulse of these developments.
