The Incredible Software Banks and Law Enforcement Agencies Use to Detect Altered Photos

By on July 5, 2015 at 12:15 PM.

For decades on end, long before Adobe Photoshop became a household name, governments across the world have manipulated photographs to serve political ends. Joseph Stalin, for instance, famously altered photographs as to remove individuals who fell out of favor with the regime.

These days, image editing tools are not only abundant, but they’re incredibly easy to use. As a result, it’s become increasingly difficult to differentiate an authentic photo from one that’s been doctored.

Coming to the rescue is a Czech startup with an interesting piece of software that can purportedly detect when photos have been manipulated with astounding accuracy.

We’re lucky to make it more than three months without a new comic book franchise hitting the theaters in 2015, but superhero movies were much harder to come by a few decades ago. In fact, some didn’t even get made, including Superman Lives, a now legendary project helmed by Tim Burton with Nicolas Cage (yes, that Nicolas Cage) in the lead role. More →

If you take a look at a list of the fastest airplanes to ever grace the skies, many of them, for whatever reason, were primarily active in the 1960s. That may change soon enough.

Military.com is reporting that the U.S. Air Force is looking to partner up and develop a hypersonic jet capable of traveling at five times the speed of sound, otherwise known as Mach 5. By way of contrast, the famed Concorde aircraft traveled at Mach 2.04.

Apple Music is here. Some people love it. Some people think it’s doomed. Wherever you stand on matters, one thing is clear: Apple did a good job hitting most of the notes it needed to hit, and it also added a couple of unique features users can’t find elsewhere. One of them, of course, is Beats 1.

Make no mistake about it; we’re currently living in a golden age of Television. Today, the seemingly endless number of incredible and riveting shows currently on-air has made it all but impossible to stay up to date with all of the content hitting our screens from every which way.
