AI watermarking tool is a software application that inserts an invisible watermark into content. The watermark will further help to identify and verify the content whether it is generated by AI or not.
Google DeepMind released an experimental AI watermarking tool, SynthID in September 2023 at the Google AI conference in California. SynthID is specially made to insert a digital watermark into the AI-generated images. Do you know how this will work?
The digital watermark will be invisible to you. Users will not be able to see it but AI can detect the watermark with an algorithm even if the image has been edited. So you will be able to know which images are AI-generated and which are not.
SynthID is still developing but it can be a helpful tool. It will be able to prevent the spread of false and misleading information. People may use AI-generated images to create false news stories, fake social media posts and other types of misleading information. SynthID can recognize these AI-generated photos and it would stop them from spreading.
Features of SynthID
Imperceptibility: Watermark is invisible to the human eye.
Robustness: Even if the image is edited, AI can detect it.
Scalability: Watermark can be of any size or resolution.
Flexibility: It can watermark images generated from any AI model.
SynthID aims to be effective and simple to use. The whole process is so quick that it will not reduce the quality of the image.
How SynthID will shape the human brain?
SynthID tool can create AI-generated images which can be used for education, entertainment, and research. But they can also be used to create false or misleading content. So when we will see the image, our brain will analyse it in a complicated way. It will use past knowledge to determine the meaning. AI-generated images may be trained to take advantage of this process and make images that are hard for us to tell apart from actual pictures.
It’s likely that AI-created visuals will have a negative impact on the human brain in some way. If we are exposed to a lot of AI-generated images, it may become difficult to distinguish between fake and real images. Gradually, it will reduce our critical thinking and our ability to tell the difference between reality and fiction.
How AI watermarking tools could be used?
Social media companies will be able to identify and remove AI-generated images and videos that spread false information.
News organizations could watermark their own AI-generated content so that no one can steal and use it without permission.
Researchers could them to study the spread of AI-generated content and to find innovative ways to tackle them.
It’s important to use SynthID properly and one should know the advantages and potential drawbacks of this technology. SynthID is still under development, but it has the potential to change the way we use and interact with AI-generated images. Let’s see how this technology will evolve in the future, till then stay connected with oreonow.
