Reality or AI? Google will show the origin of images

As part of the traditional Google I/O conference in May, there was a lot of talk about artificial intelligence and its very rapid permeation into everyday activities. At the same time, the American giant introduced not only new tools for generating AI content, but also one specific function which is to protect against machine creations. Better said before manipulations and misinformation, which can spread with its help. Google expands the previously introduced “About this result” tools with a new feature called “About this result”. “About this picture” (About this picture).

The new feature will mark visual results directly in the search with a watermark to inform that the given image is probably the work of an AI generator or has been edited. “You see a picture on a website, in your feed, or in a message from a friend — and you think, ‘This doesn’t feel quite right.’ The image is displayed in the right context? Hasn’t it been tampered with or faked? Where it comes from? When you’re trying to figure out whether a piece of information or an image is trustworthy, it’s key to have the whole story,” Google says in a newly rolled out feature.ATI Main Flow Gif

“That’s why we’re expanding our current information literacy work to include more visual literacy, helping people quickly and easily assess context and credibility pictures. In the coming months, we will launch a new tool called “About this image”. It will be available first in the US in English and you can view important contexts in it,” the company explains in detail on the blog. New verification section is starting to work in the US.

What will the new “About this image” section show?

  • When was the image and similar images first indexed in Google’s database
  • Where it probably first appeared
  • Where else has it appeared online

At the same time, the company announced that it will not only be straight for its AI generated images display the brand that artificial intelligence is behind them. “It gives you context if you come across it outside of our platforms. Creators and publishers will be able to add similar tags, so you’ll be able to see a label on images in Google search that identifies them as AI-generated. In the coming months you can expect these brands appearing on several publishers including MidjourneyShutterstock and others,” adds Google.
