Many viewers have seen incredible footage on the web and question the authenticity. Many times I have looked at a photo or video and wonder if the what I see is truth.
Now there seems to be method to validate whether or not an image or video is original content, untouched, or unedited. Professor at Dartmouth College, Dr. Hany Farid, has created a free online image verification system for anyone to test images posted to the internet. The system can recognize if an item is original content or has been altered in some way from original recording. The system reads an image as true or false at this point.
This method is in development and will surely dive into deeper inspection in time. I wonder how this technology will influence what people or companies post on social platforms.
