DARPA Program Targets Image Doctoring

DARPA announced a new program today that detects photo manipulations cleverly named MediFor, short for Media Forensics.

The program will integrate these technologies in a visual media forensics platform that, for a given image/video, will automatically detect manipulations, provide analysts and decision makers with detailed information about the types of manipulations performed, how they were performed, and their significance/importance in order to facilitate decisions regarding the intelligence value of the image/video. The MediFor platform will also automatically discover associations across visual media collections as another means for confirming the veracity of an image/video," DARPA stated.
