Adobe AI can spot facial manipulations in PhotoshopAdobe
In a world filled with manipulated photos, deepfakes and even totally fake human faces, Adobe says it's working on an artificial intelligence tool to spot fake images. Citing "the ethical implications" of Photoshop, Adobe partnered with researchers from the University of California at Berkeley to work on the issue.
Photoshop's Face Aware Liquify feature is being used to change people's facial expressions, the company said.

"Fake content is a serious and increasingly pressing issue," Adobe said in a blog post Friday, adding that it will use AI to increase trust in digital media.
Adobe and Berkeley researchers have now developed a way to detect and remove edits to images.
Their tool was able to spot altered faces 99% of the time, in comparison to the human eye, which found the alterations 53% of the time, Adobe said. It was also able to revert images to their original state.
The tool is still in its early stages, however.
"The idea of a magic universal 'undo' button to revert image edits is still far from reality," Adobe researcher Richard Zhang said. "But we live in a world where it's becoming harder to trust the digital information we consume, and I look forward to further exploring this area of research."
