Google Pho­tos gets AI in­te­gra­tion to archive users’ pic­tures

OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

Google Pho­tos has been en­hanced with an all-new AI-pow­ered up­grade that sug­gests which triv­ial pic­tures from your col­lec­tion should be archived. The lat­est de­vel­op­ment is a part of the Google As­sis­tant sup­port.

The op­tion to archive un­wanted pho­tos from your time­line is in­deed wel­come, in or­der to make your al­bums clut­ter-free. But what is more in­ter­est­ing is the ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (AI) that Google has used to de­liver this fea­ture.

You might have a mixed col­lec­tion of your pic­tures that in­clude var­i­ous mem­o­rable mo­ments along­side some im­ages that you no longer need. These could be pho­to­graphs of doc­u­ments, bill­boards or posters. The new AI in­te­gra­tion within Google Pho­tos de­tects the dif­fer­ence in­tel­li­gently, while the As­sis­tant tab helps you se­lect the not-so-im­por­tant ones for ar­chiv­ing.

“You can re­view the sug­ges­tions and re­move any pho­tos you don’t want archived, and tap to con­firm when you are done,” the Google Pho­tos team wrote in a Google+ post, ex­plain­ing the lat­est fea­ture. Once archived, you can view those unim­por­tant pic­tures in the ‘Archive’ tab.

Google has started rolling out the new fea­ture to An­droid, iOS and desk­top ver­sions of the Pho­tos app. Go­ing for­ward, the ma­chine learn­ing in­put pow­er­ing the ar­chiv­ing fea­ture is likely to be avail­able to de­vel­op­ers to test its ef­fec­tive­ness across new ar­eas.
