Fake news, doctored images, even beauty filters – all of these seem to be more and more common, making it difficult to distinguish truth from lie. But Jigsaw wants to make it easier to debunk all that fakery we see online every day. The Alphabet-owned company has created Assembler, an AI-powered tool that detects image manipulations and combats disinformation.
I haven’t put a jigsaw together since I was a kid. I remember them being a lot of fun, although they rarely had more than a couple of hundred pieces. I’m not sure if I’d ever consider doing one again, but if I did, I think it would have to be this one – assuming I can find a space large enough.
This is Kodak’s “World’s Largest Puzzle“, which is a 51,300 piece jigsaw measuring 8.7 x 1.9m (28.5′ x 6.25′). It’s actually 27 puzzles in one, each featuring different “Wonders from around the world”, but each of those 27 puzzles connects to each other to form the huge overall piece.
