If you have trouble figuring out if an image of a person is real or if it’s been generated using artificial intelligence, you’re not alone.

A new study conducted by Cheriton School of Computer Science researchers found that people had more difficulty than expected distinguishing who is a real person and who is artificially generated.

The study saw 260 participants provided with 20 unlabeled pictures: 10 of which were of real people obtained from Google searches, and the other 10 generated by Stable Diffusion or DALL-E, two commonly used AI programs that generate images.
