Medicines have to be made exactly right before people can take them. To help us, we use computers to monitor the particles that we make. This sounds great… but how does a computer know what a crystal looks like? In fact, how do computers know what anything – people, faces, cars, traffic lights – looks like?
It turns out that computers can be trained to do new tasks using a process called machine learning. This sounds complicated, but it’s actually pretty much how people learn: just keep doing it until you get it right!
Here, we have trained a computer to detect fake images of crystals. However, we also have some convincing fake images! The computer is pretty good at spotting them, but not perfect. We know you have never seen these images before, but can you beat the machine at detecting the fakes?
