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.
Google seems to heavily turning into an AI company above all else right now. AI is a necessary part of Google’s search in order to provide the most suitable results. But it’s gone far beyond that now. At Google’s I/O developer conference, CEO Sundar Pichai announced Google Lens.
It’s a new technology designed to leverage Google’s computer vision and AI technology. The goal is to make your phone’s camera “smarter”. Now your camera won’t only see what you’ll see, but it’ll understand what it is, in real time. This data can then be used in a multitude of ways, including search.
