Presentation | October 3 | 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m. | 1104 Berkeley Way West
Professor Hany Farid, School of Information & Depts. Electrical Engineering and Computer Science UC Berkeley.
Modern computer graphics are capable of generating highly photorealistic images. While this can be considered a success for the computer graphics community, it has given rise to complex forensic and legal issues. A compelling example comes in the need to distinguish between computer-generated and photographic images as it pertains to the legality and prosecution of child exploitation in the United States. Professor Farid will describe a series of experiments that measure observers ability to distinguish the photographic from the computer-generated, simple steps that can be taken to improve observer accuracy, and preliminary studies that attempt to determine how observers are performing this task.
