Alright, so check this out. Apparently, OpenAI’s generative models are now going to come with metadata that reveals where the content came from. That’s pretty wild, right? The Microsoft-backed group, C2PA, came up with this Content Credentials thing to keep track of who made what and how. It’s all safe and secure so nobody can go in and mess with it. It’s like a digital signature, you know?
And get this, certain apps will be showing a little “cr” logo when they detect this metadata in the file. It’s like a little digital stamp that says, “Hey, this was made by AI.” The idea is to make it super clear whether the content you’re looking at is real or AI-generated. You can’t be fooled, man.
But, here’s the thing – it’s not perfect. People can still take the metadata out, or just crop out the “cr” logo, you know? And it only works if apps and services actually use it. So it’s got its flaws, but it’s a start.
OpenAI is all about this idea, though. They even said that including this metadata only makes the file go up by about three percent. But, it’s gaining traction, and more and more apps are getting on board with it. I guess this is where we’re headed, folks. So, let’s see how it goes.
