Google and Apple are developing what is known as “machine learning” in order to help you procrastinate with your photos. With smartphones it has become incredibly easy to snap hundreds of pictures, but the down side to this joy is that many of these pictures get forgotten over time. Google and Apple want to help with their “machine learning” which will organize your pictures and videos and create “memories” for you to rediscover past photos. Apple updated their software to include this feature with IOS10. Google recently stated that they are looking for ways to improve their software by adding to the way your phone will create “memories”.
Apple’s “memories” feature creates highlight videos by collecting photos with a similar theme or from one particular day. These videos are not meant to be slide shows, but rather a fun video that pan and zoom. Some of the photos will even come to life if you have a newer iPhone that takes 3 second “live” photos. You can then share these videos with your friends and family via social media.
Google is advancing in facial recognition software for your photos. It is stated that Google’s face recognition can recognize the same child at 2 months and 6 years. Apple does have face recognition but it would separate the same child into different identities through the years. Google also allows users to have unlimited online storage space for photos at up to 16 megapixels and videos at 1080p high definition.
These little details can make a world of a difference if you love flipping through our old photos. “Machine learning” can help organize those fun adventures you have had and have them ready to show to your loved ones. Click on the following link to read more about Google and Apple Photo Software
