Photography apps by Google

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - FIRST TAKE -

af­ter Launch­inG phe­nom­e­nal cam­era ca­pa­bil­i­ties on its Pixel smart­phones, Google is now ex­tend­ing its ex­per­tise to other smart­phones by launch­ing three photography apps: Sto­ry­board for An­droid, Selfis­simo! for iOS and An­droid, and Scrub­bies for iOS only. These three new apps are part of Google’s ‘appsper­i­ments’ pro­gram that Google says is about us­able and use­ful mo­bile photography ex­pe­ri­ences built on ex­per­i­men­tal technology. The blog post on ‘Re­search at Google’ ex­plains that “the ‘appsper­i­men­tal’ ap­proach was in­spired in part by Mo­tion Stills, an app de­vel­oped by re­searchers at Google that con­verts short videos into cin­ema­graphs and time lapses us­ing ex­per­i­men­tal sta­bil­i­sa­tion and ren­der­ing tech­nolo­gies. Our appsper­i­ments repli­cate this ap­proach by build­ing on other tech­nolo­gies in de­vel­op­ment at Google.” These new apps rely on ob­ject recog­ni­tion, per­son seg­men­ta­tion, styli­sa­tion al­go­rithms, and ef­fi­cient im­age en­cod­ing and de­cod­ing tech­nolo­gies.
