Google has rolled out an image verification tool that provides users with verified data about images found on the internet. This tool offers insights into when an image was originally published, whether it has been republished, and its history across the internet. It’s a useful feature for verifying the authenticity of images, especially in the context of news events.
The tool also shows how other websites use and describe the image, aiding in understanding its context. Additionally, Google’s tool can identify AI-generated images, though this depends on the presence of relevant metadata.
By offering this tool, Google aims to combat the spread of misinformation and contribute to more accurate image verification on the internet.
