How many times have you said or heard: “I’ll believe it when I see it”? This expression reveals our eyes’ dramatic convincing power: when you see something, you tend to believe it’s true much more easily than when you hear or read about it. In the digital age, for most people, this convincing power seamlessly extended to pictures they see on their computer or smartphone. Unfortunately, we all know how easy it is to forge images nowadays, to the point that seeing is no longer believing.
Fake images can play a crucial role in so many aspects of our life: politics, information, health, insurance, reputation, social media identity, terrorism. Virtually all aspects of our existence are somehow related to images.
