Adobe Touts AI Research Aimed at Detecting Altered Images

Artificial intelligence researchers at Adobe are working on software that can detect whether a person’s face in an image has been manipulated, the company announced in a blog post. Adobe’s work, which also includes researchers from UC Berkeley, comes amid growing concerns over the spread of AI-assisted image and video manipulation, known as “deep fakes,” which some U.S. lawmakers have flagged as a national security issue. 

Adobe said the work reflects the attention it is paying to “the ethical implications” of its technology and is part of broader efforts to detect manipulated video, audio, and documents. Since Adobe’s software tools can be used to manipulate media files, the company has plenty of motivation to develop ways to address the threat.
