In the last year we witnessed an unprecedented revolution in the field of image creation. Advances in the development of artificial intelligence tools have meant that computers can now generate realistic compositions of people, animals, objects and landscapes that do not exist in reality.
Generative models such as StyleGAN, Dall-3, Midjourney or Stable Diffusion are capable of learning the characteristics and patterns of billions of real images and then composing others that follow the same rules. The results are “photos” of impressive quality that, at first glance, it is impossible to know if they are fake.

This amazing capacity of artificial intelligence raised many questions that the community has not yet been able to answer: will we be able to differentiate in the future between a real photo and one created by a computer? What consequences could come from the possibility of generating images that cannot be confirmed if they are false?
To explore this question, we invite you to take a test. Below you will find a series of images of people. Some are real photographs, and others are images created by AI. Do you dare to try to distinguish which is which?
Are you able to distinguish a real face from an image generated by artificial intelligence?
