Fake news, fake fashion, fake art, fake drugs. In a world of fake, IBM has come up with a new gadget you attach to your phone’s camera and sync to an app. It scans materials at a micro level and tells you if it is indeed fake or real. By combining microscopy, spectroscopy, and a little bit of AI, the Verifier compares what it sees to a known version of the item and tells you whether they’re the same. At the micron level there are patterns and optical characteristics that aren’t visible to the human eye, like precisely which wavelengths of light it reflects. The quality of a weave, the number of flaws in a gem, the mixture of metals in an alloy… all stuff you or I would miss, but a machine learning system trained on such examples will pick out instantly. The first planned application will be used for the diamond trade. 📷: Susan Lohrer (and yes, this is a fake diamond in the photo)
