Sony partners with AP and Camera Bits to develop technology for identifying real and AI-manipulated photos in cameras.

New technology creates a 'birth certificate' for images with digital signatures, making photo verification simple and reliable.

Sony's solution helps news agencies fight falsified images, crucial for maintaining public trust in accurate photojournalism.

The digital signature stays intact despite photo edits, preserving the image's original authenticity effectively.

Neal Manowitz, Sony's President, emphasizes the importance of authentic imagery in journalism to uphold its integrity.

Firmware updates for Sony's Alpha 9 III, Alpha 1, and Alpha 7S III cameras coming in Spring 2024, enabling authentication.

Sony's initiative is a major advancement in distinguishing real photography from AI-generated images, especially in sensitive journalistic scenarios.
