Hany Farid, professor and chair of computer science, discusses the process of digital authentication, determining whether a piece of media is real or fake. This is an important and timely problem, given how easily digital files can be manipulated and spread widely. Farid also goes back in history to look at some of the most controversial images and see if we can use modern technology to determine their veracity.
