Digital Image Forensics

Prof. Hany Farid

We no longer live in a world where seeing (or hearing) is believing. The technology that allows for digital media to be manipulated and distorted is developing at break-neck speeds. And at the same time, our understanding of the technological, ethical, and legal implications is lagging behind.

We are, therefore, developing mathematical and computational algorithms to detect tampering in digital media. To do so, we quantify statistical correlations that result from specific forms of digital tampering, and devise detection schemes to reveal these correlations.
