Google is expanding the functionality of its image search. The ‘About this image’ drop-down will offer more context, such as the date an image or ones similar to it was originally indexed by Google, the location of that indexation, and the source of the image. Every AI-generated image that is made by the tech giant’s technologies will be marked.
Google announced that any image created using its own generative AI tools would have metadata indicating if it was created using AI. Using the same technology, both creators and publishers would be able to label their photographs.
