OpenAI Introduces Image Detection Tool

OpenAI is introducing a new tool capable of identifying images produced by its text-to-image generator DALL-E 3, the startup backed by Microsoft revealed on Tuesday amidst growing concerns over the impact of AI-generated content on this year’s global elections. 

As per the company’s internal testing, OpenAI’s new tool is a game-changer in the fight against AI-generated content. With an impressive accuracy rate of approximately 98% in detecting DALL-E 3-generated images, the tool’s potential impact cannot be overstated, even when dealing with typical modifications like compression, cropping, and saturation changes.

The creator of ChatGPT intends to implement tamper-resistant watermarking to label digital content like photos or audio that would be challenging to erase. 

With this initiative, OpenAI has joined a Google, Microsoft, and Adobe industry association whose aim is to establish a standard for tracing the origins of various media forms. 

Notably, during the April general election in India, counterfeit videos featuring two Bollywood actors criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi went viral across online platforms.

AI-generated content and deepfakes are becoming more common in India and elections in countries like the United States, Pakistan, and Indonesia.

OpenAI announced its collaboration with Microsoft in the launch of a $2 million “societal resilience” fund aimed at bolstering AI education.
