AI generated summary

Detecting Real vs. Synthetic Images

This paper summarizes the 2022 IEEE Video and Image Processing Cup student competition, which challenged teams to develop systems for distinguishing real photos from AI-generated synthetic images. With new generative models producing highly realistic fake visual content, detecting synthesized media is crucial for maintaining trust online. The competition tested generalization on new architectures and robustness to compression. The top solutions used ensembles of deep networks trained on diverse augmented data. Key findings were the difficulty of generalizing to novel models and properly setting detection thresholds in open sets.
