People can’t tell difference between AI and real images


As artificial intelligence (AI) software evolves it is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish between what’s real and what’s fake.

Artificial intelligence has made significant advancements in the ability to generate realistic images, making it much harder to distinguish between images created by AI and those captured by real-life cameras.

Recent studies have shown that AI-generated images can be almost indistinguishable from actual photographs, contributing to a growing interest in using AI in the fields of photography and digital art. 

Can the public tell which famous landmark is real and which is AI-generated? Concured, an AI-powered content recommendation system, put the general public’s knowledge and polled 1,000 Americans to find out if artificial intelligence can create an image that looks real. And what better way to test it than on famous landmarks that we all know so well?

The Concured poll found that nearly a third of people couldn’t recognise the real Eiffel Tower, half believed the AI grand canyon was genuine, and over a third of Americans were fooled into thinking that all the artificial intelligence-generated images were their real counterparts.

“AI will transform content and marketing,” said Tom Salvat, CEO, Concured. “It is already automating complex tasks, personalising experiences, and providing data-driven insights, leading to increased efficiency, effectiveness, and profitability. With 35 per cent of Americans already being unable to differentiate between authentic and artificial intelligence images, it already underlines the power of artificial intelligence and the difficulty to detect artificial intelligence created content.”

One of the key advantages of AI-generated images is the ability to quickly create a large number of unique images, which can be useful in industries such as advertising and eCommerce

It is, however, important to note that artificial intelligence-generated images are not yet perfect and there are still differences between them and real images. In some cases, artificial intelligence-generated images can appear to be slightly blurred or pixelated and they may not have the same level of detail as real photographs.
