 Google releases the new version of Google Photos: adding a large number of new features of AI


The previously published photo application GooglePhotos has enabled users to use built-in editing tools to easily repair photos, and to use artificial intelligence to automatically create collages, animations, movies, stylistic pictures, and so on. Now, the companys new GooglePhotos application, through artificial intelligence, makes it easier for users to repair photos, which will provide quick repair photos and other adjustments, such as rotation, brightness correction, or adding color. These changes in the new GooglePhotos application are another example of Googles theme of AI this year. This technology is closer to the end user. AI for the new version of GooglePhotos is no longer hidden in the assistant tab, but is placed directly in the main interface. The company says the idea of adding a repair proposal to the photo itself is because they realize that it is the most active part of the application. GooglePhotos product director Dave Lieb (DaveLieb) previously explained: as GooglePhotos has grown significantly over the past few years, people spend a lot of time looking at photos in GooglePhotos applications. He added, every day, GooglePhotos uses about 5 billion photos per day. This reminds the team that they should focus on solving some problems that people find when browsing photos. For example, if the photo taken by the user is too dim, a small button will appear below the photo so that the brightness can be determined by click. If the photo is on one side, the user can press the button to rotate it. Of course, these operations can be done manually prior to editing tools. But the updated application is now just making it a key fix. The Photoscan technology of Google has also stimulated some new functions, which can restore photos in documents or documents by enlarging, cutting and adjusting photos. Another new tool will analyze people in the photos and prompt users to share them with them, similar to the previous sharing suggestions. There is also a new feature that prompts users to archive photos of old receipts. Another function called ColorPop can identify the main images in the foreground and turn the background into black and white. In addition to the new tools released at the developer conference this week, the GooglePhotos application is also preparing to publish the Colorize tool to turn black-and-white photos into color images. This tool was also inspired by Photoscan, because Google found that many people were scanning or copying old photos, including a large number of black and white photographs. Our team believes that if we apply computer vision and AI to black-and-white photographs, what will happen? Can we recreate the color version of the old photos? It was pointed out by LEB. They want to know if they can train the technology to re - color the image so that the user can see the picture taken at the time, or at least to the environment at that time. This is the idea of a color photo tool. The neural network will try to infer the best possible colors in some parts of the photo, such as turning the lawn green. This is more simple. By contrast, making skin tone accurate can be even more difficult. So the team will not release this function until it is really right. The new GooglePhotos application is released with the GooglePhotosLibraryAPI developer preview, which allows third party developers to take advantage of GooglePhotoss storage, infrastructure and artificial intelligence.
