In almost every period of human history, some kind of forgery exists. Today, however, deep fakes and fake images that look realistic is featured. It’s getting harder and harder to spot these fake images. Scientists, on the other hand, have an advice for understanding fake images.
Thanks to the method developed by scientists, we can see the faces we look at. knowing whether it’s fake or real might be possible. To understand the difference between the images created by artificial intelligence and real people, we need to look at the eyes.
The truth is hidden in the eyes:
researcher at the State University of New York Hui Guo’s according to his study, the secret to understanding fake images lies in the eyes, especially in the shape of the irises. To understand the difference, all we have to do is zoom in on the images.
When we get closer to the image before us structure of pupil and iris helps to understand whether the image is real or not. While real irises and pupils are round, distortions occur in artificial intelligence images.
In research team articles “Irises are almost round in shape in healthy adults. Compared to real faces, GAN-made images we observed visible marks and inconsistencies in the eye area..
It is possible to distinguish fake images:
Scientists use images in the images to test this theory. separating according to eye shapes uploaded 1000 real and 1000 fake face photos to the system after developing a software. Evaluating eye shapes, the program was able to reliably separate images just by looking at this criterion.
According to the researchers, one day, thanks to this study, fake images can be used to take precautions to prevent it from being used as if it were real. It is believed that these measures will be very useful, especially on platforms that are open to manipulation such as social media.
