You posted it before I had a chance to do so. Brave new world!

By chance, I just came across a relevant link regarding photojournalism ethics:
https://www.csus.edu/indiv/g/goffs/135%20photojournalism/associated%20press%20ethics%20code.pdf

Of course the problems created by manipulating faces presumably aren't being created by responsible journalists and news organizations but by other players...

Some equipment used for 'evidence purposes' composes the image data into an encrypted and hashed container. This allows you to proove that the image is original and unmodified.

Maybe we'll soon see some blockchain-technology being used to track the entire lifespan of images, from the camera to consumer - so one can tell if the image has been processed and in which way (changing metadata may be OK but not changing image data, or vice-versa, or both). Interesting challenges.

Not sure if the diminishing resources of camera vendors allow for such things.
Or if Google or one of the other tech giants throws enough money at this and then offers the only 'safe' environment for photography.
Micorsoft and other vendors are working on AIs which can detect fakes done by other AIs...brave new world, indeed. Takes soma pill  ;)

Incredible, and rather sinister.
Good that the article in NYT gives some pointers on characteristics to check.
