Since few decades artificial intelligence is being embedded into cameras. With the advent of technology, programming resulted in the capturing of high-quality images. As we don’t know the bounds of human intelligence and in the same way we don’t know about the bounds of artificial intelligence as well.
By the end of this year, a software development company which is producing luminaire which is a photoshop competitor and photo luminaire which is a photo correction tool is going to produce AI managed selection control which is called as masking. Being an app with 700 million users Youcam will add virtual makeup for the selfie taken is using AI.
You may be wondering about the type of smartphone cameras which will create a trend in future, to know about it you have to pay attention to the announcements made by manufacturers. In the past 2 years, photography is taken into the next level and there will be no chance that it will get down. Artificial intelligence is adding value to the cameras by providing a better understanding of what it is seeing.AI is not about focusing on a lens but about the kind of software that is embedded in your cameras.
In 2015 Google photos was launched which brought a revolution of how artificial intelligence along with photography had brought a revolution. Previously Google+ was used to classify the image from any decade. With the advent of AI classification of photos became easy and all the libraries are in an organised manner in overnight. Google introduced the term ‘supervised learning’ which relied on the previous work of acquisition in 2013. It will train the network with million of Images and can be recognised with visual clues. The algorithm named panda came into picture which means it recognises both the white and black spots of panda even. With the advancement of the algorithm and additional training it is possible for the extraction of terms like “place” and “animals”.
A lot of time is required to train an algorithm as well as high processing capacity. After the completion of this task, it takes less power to run on low power mobiles. Once the photos are uploaded into the cloud, Google will use the models to analyse the tag of your entire library. After the introduction of neural networks, Apple introduced the same feature which as a privacy categorisation is done in each processor. After configuration, this will usually take one or two days which will happen in the background.
Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence had a great impact in which images are captured in which intelligent photo management software is one of its kind. These day mobile phones are producing better pictures than many professional cameras. The hardware which is used is known as computational photography. Even though all the computer photography don’t involve AI, but AI will be an important component. Apple uses this technology for dual cameras to use in portrait mode. Image processing signal processor of Apple in which the first camera will recognise the face and the second camera will blur the background.
For the role of software in photography, the night view of Google is an impressive announcement.The release of night sight by Google seemed to be so hard for a couple of months. The automatic learning algorithm with a new pixel function which calculates the balance between the colours. Now it’s more important than camera hardware in terms of cellular photography. Its function works better at Pixel 3 because the algorithm is designed with the latest hardware, but Google makes it available to all Pixel phones, even the original ones that don’t have optical image stabilization and are impressive announcements about how the software works.
The hardware will also make a difference especially when it is backed up with AI. The latest sensor Sony IMX586 is launched by Huawei for mobiles New Honor View 20 phone and Nova 4.Its the largest sensor with 48 megapixel which is of highest resolution. There will be a problematic situation for image quality due to the grouping of numerous small pixels into small space. However, in the Mi Vista 20 test, the “AI Ultra Clarity” Honor mode is great for maximizing resolution, outlining unusual sensor colour filters to unlock additional details. This translates into large photographs that can be extended for days.
Every mobile nowadays is chosen based on the camera and embedding AI is making them smart.AI is not just about taking pictures, it will automatically add colours, corrects any imperfections for the better viewing of pictures.AI will erase the gap between our eyes and the picture to be taken. For example, when we look at the moon, it looks really amazing but when you try to capture it with your camera it will disappoint you for sure. For sure our eyes are the best cameras when compared to any other quality cameras in the world. But Artificial Intelligence is taking a step forward to enhance the quality of the picture, so it will be near to our visualisation. What kind of treatment a given image is needed is to be decided with the help of a neural network.
Nowadays almost all the smartphones are to be embedded with AI. And it simplifies our lives a lot. The way of taking and managing photos will have a great impact on the introduction of AI. Without the usage of photoshop AI, will helps to upscale the images. There are advances in AI which makes our cameras more dynamic. It helps to tag objects in an image, skip the editing, control the light and colour in one slider. Soon AI will bring resolutions in photography.
