I will look for ways to prove that a photo was taken.
As AI evolves, deep fakes may flood in the world and disrupt society.
So I think we need a way to distinguish between photos and Deepfakes.
The photos generated by Deepfakes will become more sophisticated in the future, making them harder to spot.
So I had the opposite idea.
I will prove photos, not deepfakes.
If this can be achieved, it will also be possible to prove that the video was shot with a camcorder.
Add the feature to the camera to record the hash of the photograph taken on the blockchain.
If you want to prove that a photo in local storage was taken with a camera, compare the hash of that photo with what was recorded in the blockchain.
But this idea is imperfect.
Someone could modify the blockchain camera and record the hash of the fake photo on the blockchain.
What to expect from USG?
Solving this problem is very difficult for me.
However, if by any chance this problem is solved, I will be able to solve global issues with blockchain, so I would like to take on the challenge.
So I would like to get feedback and advice from engineers.
I started making a camera that shoots NFTs from April 3rd.
I came up with this proposal in the process.
I made this camera as a new tool for photographers and artists.
I also aim to create new type of NFTs collection with it.
This is the NFT taken with that camera.
When I think of NFTs, I think of attributes.
So I added a feature to the camera to add the recognized objects to attributes.
And I’ve also added the feature to generate a hash from a photo on a trial basis.
The string next to ‘sha256’ in the NFT metadata is the hash.
The metadata of this NFT is stored in IPFS, so I want to record its hash in the blockchain.
I’ve been developing it with the milestone of submitting it to hackathons.
I’ve given presentation it at two hackathons so far.
6/9 Polkadot Hackathon 2023 in Korea.
6/29 AI + Crypto Hackathon in Japan.
And I entered Polkadot Hackathon APAC EDITION2023 whose submit deadline is July 23rd.
I deployed the DApp with Bunzz so I didn’t code the DApp.
So I applied to Astar University.
So far I don’t know how to solve the problem.
I will aim to find a solution within three months.
