Google Announced It’s Expanding AI Tools
Google has announced that it will be adding new features to its search engine that will allow users to more accurately assess the reliability of both photos and websites. The firm has announced three new features: picture fact-checking, the introduction of image verification into products for journalists, and the enhancement of contextual information about lesser-known websites.
The initial update makes Google’s “About This Image” function available to users of all languages who speak English. When an image was initially posted online, where it has been described, and whether or not it has metadata suggesting it was created by AI are all pieces of information that may be gleaned from this tool. According to Google, this may be used to tell if an old photo has been cropped or manipulated to propagate false information. You may access the function by selecting an image and then selecting “More options” from the menu that appears.

Google is experimenting with its new generative AI models
Fact Check Explorer, Google’s collection of fact-checks from independent groups across the world, now supports picture searches. Journalists and verified fact checkers may now access this picture collection via API to aid in refuting phony viral photos and videos. Using the picture search, early adopters were able to speed up the publication of confirmed image claims by cutting fact-checking time by more than 70%.
To assist users in navigating new websites, Google is experimenting with its new generative AI models. Search results for users who have opted in may include artificial intelligence-summarized summaries of sources supported by reliable sites that discuss the website.
Users will be able to better evaluate information from unfamiliar vendors or sources that don’t have Wikipedia articles with the help of this. According to Google, this is a pilot program meant to improve upon the company’s preexisting information panels and summaries.
Due to the quick proliferation of false information transmitted by photographs taken out of context, some revisions are being made. Seventy percent of respondents in a 2023 Poynter Institute research said they didn’t trust pictures they saw online. Google has said that its newest capabilities are an attempt to solve this issue and provide users with greater confidence while conducting internet searches.
