I make fake images. People are terrible at spotting them.

I work on a US government project that tries to come up with ways to spot images and videos that have been edited. My team’s job is to play the part of the bad guy. We create sneaky and convincing ways to make fakes. We do this to give other researchers a challenge when they’re testing out their detection methods.
