Cracking the Case of Image Forensics

For the last 20 years, we have been warned not to believer everything we see or read on the internet. Today’s “Tartan Talks” guests explores that concept in today’s deep dive. Dr. Larry Downey has taught mathematics at Edinboro University since 2012. But in his research, he developed a software program that can detect false or doctored images that appear on the internet and in academic research. Dr. Downey joins us to discuss the field of image forensics and provides some examples of viral images that have turned out to be 100% fake.
