At yesterday’s 2018 I/O keynote, Google has introduced some interesting improvements to Google Photos. One of the features I found the most interesting is that Google Photos will soon be able to colorize your old black and white photos with a single click. Other than that, there are a few other new features that let you improve or share photos in a second.
Pinterest has just rolled out a new, AI-powered feature that lets you browse through beauty images by skin tone ranges. Visiting Pinterest is one of the handy ways to get inspired, so this new feature might be useful for beauty, portrait and fashion photographers looking for some creativity boost.
Skydio has announced R1, a self-flying AI-powered drone that will follow you on your adventures. Skydio R1 is fully autonomous, equipped with 12 navigational cameras. It shoots 4K videos, and the company says it features the most advanced tracking and navigation system ever flown.
Not long ago, Google introduced Clips, an AI-powered camera trained to capture the best moments of your life. It has no LCD screen and there’s only a shutter button, which is completely optional. Google Clips uses artificial intelligence to recognize and save your “perfect moments” itself. But how is it possible? According to Google, it’s because they hired “a documentary filmmaker, a photojournalist, and a fine arts photographer” to help train the camera’s neural network.
